Reminder: Windows 7 Beta to begin bi-hourly shutdowns next week

Greetings Readers!

This is your friendly reminder that if you are still running the Windows 7 beta, you need up upgrade to the RC.  Starting Monday, July 1st, the Windows 7 beta will begin shutting down every 2 hours as a way to alert you that it will expire soon and you should get all of you important data off before it does.  The beta expires on August 1st, so if you don’t upgrade by then, you could be in real trouble.

Windows 7 RC users won’t have to worry about this until March 1st 2010 and expiration on June 1st 2010.  That should give you plenty of time to get the retail version which ships in late October.  If you aren’t on the RC yet, I recommend it as it has several great features that the beta doesn’t.  I am running Windows 7 on all of my machines now and I don’t think I could be happier.
