Last day to download Windows 7 RC1

THURSDAY 20 AUGUST is the final day Windows 7 Release Candidate 1 can be downloaded, installed and run for free until 1 June 2010.

Microsoft is taking Windows 7 RC1 off the plate as an option for those who are still unsure if they want to fork money out for Windows ME servicepack 9. The almost-ready-for-retail version was put out into the ether for muggles to play with from 5 May this year, giving them a free OS for just over a year and along the way help iron-out some of the myriad bugs.

Just to remind you of its foibles, Windows RC1 doesn't have support for Bluetooth audio, the ‘AutoRun' feature is disabled on removable storage and there's no support for Windows XP applications. And there is no direct upgrade path to the final version.

Just in case you still want the fully blown Windows 7, you'll have to wait until 22 October.

Get the piggy bank out.  :o
