Microsoft Reveals End Date For Win7RC Downloads

Microsoft’s Stephen L. Rose penned a blog post earlier this week and reminded folks still using the Windows 7 Beta release that their days were numbered when it comes to downloading the RC.

Starting next Wednesday, July 1, the Beta will start to reboot every two hours and expire one month later, on August 1.

Don’t worry, users can still install the RC and get a key if they need one, post August 15. Just hit up the download page and follow the instructions. The Release Candidate is set to expire on June 1 of next year.
