windows 7If you tried the Windows 7 beta, you need to remember your clock is quickly winding down.

The beta version of Windows 7, build 7000, was released in January of this year, and starting on July 1st, your system will begin shutting down every two hours as a reminder you need to move to the Windows 7 release candidate, build 7100, that came out in May.  If you have not moved from 7000 to 7100 by August 15th, your desktop will begin displaying a message saying that your system is not genuine, and this will be followed by unknown punishments from Microsoft.

You can still get the release candidate through August 15th for free, and that version will be usable through March 2010 when it starts its own cycle of bi-hourly shut downs.

Considering both version were free, there isn’t a whole lot to complain about here.  The final version of Windows 7 is rumored to be going out to manufacturers in July for a fall release.  Very soon Vista may be a distant, ugly memory, for users and new computer buyers.
