Watching Win 7 Speck by Speck

Some journalists break big stories like Watergate and Monica. Others search the Internet looking for the tiniest of clues to the tiniest of news which we all rush to publish.

Here is one such story: It seems that an Internet reporter found a Windows 7 screenshot and, by looking closely, identified May 5 as the possible day TechNet and MSDN customers could download the release candidate of Windows 7. Heavens to Murgatroyd! 

The only reason I'm bringing you this little speck of news is that you have me excited about Windows 7, because many of you are running the beta and you really like it!
