It seems that Microsoft Corp. has confirmed that the Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) will be available to the general public on May 5, a date that was leaked last weekend when a company site briefly published details about the upcoming milestone.

Microsoft spokesman Brandon LeBlanc also announced that the release candidate would be available before then to subscribers to a pair of services targeting developers and IT professionals, in an entry to a company blog. "The RC is on track for April 30 for download by MSDN and TechNet subscribers. Broader, public availability will begin on May 5," LeBlanc said.
