If you are still using the Windows 7 beta version on your PC/Laptop than we will like you to remember that the Windows 7 beta trial version  has expired  today and from now onward you will be alerted to install a released version of Windows (Windows 7 RC )and your PC will shut down automatically every 2 hours. On August 1st, 2009 if you are still on the Windows 7 Beta your license for the Windows 7 Beta will expire and the non-genuine experience is triggered where your wallpaper is removed and “This copy of Windows is not genuine” will be displayed in the lower right corner above the taskbar.



  1. It is good to see reasonable beta terms from Microsoft. This time, they have not only succeeded in a good comeback after sluggish Vista, but have also made people try out their product without cracking it.

    Yet another superb marketing strategy from Microsoft.
    Keep it up, Ballmer!
