Windows 7 Release Candidate

Microsoft sent me 8 copies of Windows 7 the other day. If you have a geeky side and would like to install Windows 7 on your computer to play around with before it comes out, let me know and I’ll get one of these over to you.

It should be noted that this is the release candidate and being pre-release there will be no in-place upgrade to the final product. You’ll have to wipe out and start over. So it’s for experimental purposes only.

Ted’s been our early adopter and he loves it. He’s been running it since beta 1 which is probably a year ago by now. Diana actually runs Windows Server 2008 on her laptop and Vista and Windows 7 in a virtual environment within it. Are they geeks or what? :) But hey, that’s how we learn…on our own systems not yours.

There is no official release date yet for Windows 7 but it is anticipated that it will be available for the holiday buying season.
