Own Windows 7 A Year Early, Legally
You read right, you can download Release Candidate one for Windows 7 for free, from now until July 1st. It’s essentially what you’d be getting with the final product due out Q1 of next year, plus or minus a few features and its 100% free and legal. But that of course means there’s a catch.
In this case, the catch doesn’t apply until next June when in which Windows 7 RC1 will shut down every two hours until you say “the hell with this” and replace it with a legit copy. But until that day we can all enjoy the less buggy, prettier, vista upgrade for free. Syetem requirements and the download + installation instrcutions can be found here
