Brandon LeBlanc has a blog post on the Windows 7 Team Blog about RTM, linked below. What I think you will enjoy even more is the actual Windows 7 RTM Sign-Off at the Engineering 7 blog.
"The final few minutes before RTM are a sign-off process where each and every team that contributed to Windows formally commits to having successfully executed the work necessary for the product to be in the release process. We gather one last time (for Windows 7) in the “Ship Room” and a representative from each team signs (literally) and signifies their team’s readiness for manufacturing. We thought we’d share this moment with you here today."
"Next stop, October 22, 2009!"
