Earlier it became known that Microsoft will launch its latest operating system -branded Windows 7- on the 22nd of October, later this year. As of yet, only beta versions were available of the software, but according to the German website Hartware.de, Microsoft already gives the RTM status to Windows 7 on the 13th of July. This would reportedly be done during the Worldwide Partner Conference 2009, which takes place in New Orleans that day. MSDN and Technet members will be the first to receive this version.
The Windows 7 operating system is mostly considered to be a further developed version of Windows Vista. This means that a large number of tweaks are to make the system more user friendly, more stable, and predominantly, faster. Another new feature of Windows 7 is the support for DirectX 11.
