Those two have a limited time you can use them, once they have expired your PC will turn off every 2 hours or something like that.
The Final Release version of Windows 7 is scheduled for later this year.
Also I have noticed (here in Australia atleast) that you can purchase Windows Vista with a free upgrade to Windows 7 when it is released. It costs more (not much by the way) but is well worth it in My opinion.
Hope this helps (Someone correct me if I am wrong)
|For my rig what would be the better operating system Windows 7 or Vista? Im going to be using it mostly for gaming and also video editing.|
|Can someone please explain to me what is going on with windows 7 because i am confused. It isn't released until October 22nd but Newegg is selling it for some reason.|
|There are people who have a version that doesn't expire until March or April 2010 that they got for free or something.|
|When i go to the windows website they have Windows 7 RC. What are the differences?|
|Would I have to have Vista already installed on my computer? Or can I just install it fresh.|
