    Default Windows 7 RC released

    I just found out that Windows 7, Release Candidate was released today. And if I got this right, it's very similar to the finished product.
    This version will last until 1st June 2010. But... You should really read this before doing anything..

You’ll also need to install the programs and data that you want to use.
    Well another upside is, that there is unlimited keys for this, so everyone can get it. This RC version will be available to July this year.

    Just scroll down to the end of the page, select 32-bit or 64-bit and your language and download. Also, You'll have to log in with Windows Live account and disable pop-up blocker on the site or it wont work.

    Here's what your computer needs to have for this to work.

    Even if you are using a gaming pc,just add a new HDD and install Windows 7 in there.

    Why would you do that? It's way more expensive then just partitioning your harddrive.

    Yeah, that's what I'm going to do. Now I'll just need to buy another DVD-R.
