Dell Releases Windows 7 Drivers
Dell (Dell) on Friday released a set of Windows 7 drivers for its commercial desktop and laptop products, company officials said. The drivers can be downloaded from Dell's customer support site free of charge.
"The Windows 7 team at Dell is excited about the progress we have made to get the OS ready for commercial customers and is looking forward to launch in just a couple of short months," said Dell officials, in a blog post.
"We have received many requests from our business customers that we post our Windows 7 drivers so they can begin testing and qualifying the new OS within their environments," the officials said. Dell will release additional Windows 7 drivers in the coming weeks as they become available. "We will post additional drivers once they pass rigorous testing and certification standards," the officials said.
Driver support from third-party vendors is critical to Windows 7's success. Lack of driver availability hobbled Windows Vista's January, 2007 launch—a fact that helped doom the OS in the enterprise market.

about time. I was loading vista and win2k8 drivers for my E6400. I'll have to update them and get back.

Are these drivers updated versions to what comes on the RTM DVD? Are they compatible with the RC installation?
