Windows 7 has been garnering much hype, as most Windows products usually do. I donâ€™t really understand why as we all know that most â€“ if not all â€“ of their releases are always riddle with bugs anyway. Anyhow, Windows 7 is the newest product in Microsoftâ€™s long line of operating systems and they are doing something different this time around.
Windows 7 is now available for download at Microsoftâ€™s web site. This version is called the Windows 7 Release Candidate and is free to download for everyone. Basically, those who download this version will serve as a tester for Microsoft. I am sure that a lot of people will jump to get this offer, especially since there are a lot who cannot wait to get rid of Vista.
The software can be downloaded starting now until July 2009. Those who download and install Windows 7 can run it without problems (well, problems regarding license at least) till March 1, 2010. When that time comes however, the system will shut down every two hours. The release will also expire on the first of June 2010.
I suppose that it should be okay to download Windows 7, if only to say that you are one of the first in the world to have used it. More so, if you really hate Vista that much, you can only gain from trying out a new OS, right? As for me, I think Iâ€™ll stick with my XP for now. How about you?
