A helpful message from Microsoft - not

"IMPORTANT REMINDER ABOUT BETA EXPIRATION DATE

"Thanks again for your help in testing the Windows 7 Beta.

"We’re sending this mail to remind you that Windows 7 Release candidate is available and to make sure you plan ahead for when the Beta expires on August 1, 2009. On June 1, 2009, the PC you’re using to test the Beta will begin shutting down every two hours. Windows will send you a notice a couple of weeks in advance, and that’d be the ideal time to rebuild your test PC with a non-expired version of Windows, such as the RC or Windows Vista. This will be a clean installation, so be ready to reinstall your programs and data"

I didn't bother to try their stuff as I wasn't able to download this "Beta" version. But why does anyone else go to all this trouble? And all so that they can protect their so-called "intellectual property".

I always advise people not to touch anything Microsoft with a bargepole but it is amazing how many have been conned into believing that they need it in order to be "compatible".
