Joel Oleson, a senior product manager on Office SharePoint Server, announced on the SharePoint Team blog the RTW (Release to Web) version of WSS and Office SharePoint Server 2007 (Standard and Enteprise editions). These are available for download so you can start using WSS immediately in a production environment (this is the final version) and install eval versions of MOSS if you so desire. Joel even posted the product keys for installation if you need them and where to download the files. Check out his post here.
Jeff Teper, Mr. BigWig himself (the corporate vice president of SharePoint Server), also has a post here describing the journey and how important MOSS is to the even bigger guy, BillG. Congrats guys, it's been a long and winding road but we're finally there (or here, depending on which way you're looking at it).
Now back to my DevConnections post and other SharePoint-y stuff.
