Last week i downloaded Windows 7 Professional from ELMS (student part of MSDNAA). Win7 came out much faster then Vista did. For Vista it took more then 7 months after RTM release, and about 1 month after public release. While Win7 came within one month of RTM release. I am just wondering what has changed, is it Microsoft who has started to value up comming developers more, or was just a little snag with Vista release. ELMS in general is pretty good if you are a student, you get to use MOST of Microsoft products for free (for that you have to actively study on a MSDNAA connected unversity).
