Windows 7 Beta expires on August 1 09

RC1 will run until June 1 2010


We got
an interesting notice from Microsoft saying that Beta of Windows 7 which we've downloaded is about to expire on the first day of August this year.

On June 1st your Beta will begin shutting down your PC every two hours and we are sure that this will be very annoying.

It is up to you to upgrade to Windows 7 release candidate one that will run your PC until June 1 2010 and after this date you will have to get out and buy Windows 7. At this time, there is no indication about the real Windows 7 pricing but you can at least hope that an upgrade from Windows Vista Ultimate should be cheap as people were more than annoyed with endless problems which Vista caused.

The good news for current Windows 7 users is that you will be able to upgrade your release candidate version with an older version of OS from Microsoft, so Vista and hopefully XP upgrade should do fine.
