Windows 7 – Your time is almost up!

image Here are some very important updates on timing that you need to be aware of with Windows 7, so take a moment and read through these points:

1) For those of you that took advantage of the Windows 7 Beta download – You need to move to the Windows 7 Release Candidate and fast. Starting July 1st, the Beta will start to reboot every 2 hrs and expire Aug 1st.image

2) For those of you that want to download the Windows 7 Release Candidate, now is the time to do it! Why? Because the Windows 7 Release Candidate download program closes August 15th. After that, you won’t be able to get the download, but you can still install  the Release Candidate (if you downloaded it already) and get a key if you need one. (To get a key, just go to the Downloads page and follow the instructions.)

Are you using the Windows 7 Release Candidate already? If so, the team would love to hear back from you on your thoughts about it. Go to and tell them what you think.

Be sure to take care of those important items noted above before the deadline dates! If you know of others in either of those situations, please be sure to share this information with them as well. So come August 16th, none of you should be saying, “I wish I had known!” or “You didn’t tell me!”

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
