Crazy. As soon as I decide to write something about Beta to RC to RTM, the very same day we announce that a RC (release candidate) image will be available to MSDN and TechNet subscribers on April 30. It will be more broadly available on May 5.
I was really thinking it was going to be available the week of TechEd 2009. It just goes to show I can’t predict the future after all. Darn it!
