Windows 7 RC Expires Virtually on 1st March

Public Download of Window 7 RC build has gone live today and will be available till July 2009. But Microsoft is playing Fishy games about its expiry. As described on the Microsoft’s Website : “The RC will expire on June 1, 2010. Starting on March 1, 2010, your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. Windows will notify you two weeks before the bi-hourly shutdowns start. To avoid interruption, you’ll need to install a non-expired version of Windows before March 1, 2010” This means the expiry that is set for June 1st 2010 is just for namesake where as it expires on March 1st itself. So from March 1 2010 Windows 7 RC will have its control over the computer and this will leave the users frustrated having to start the computer again every 2 hours.
