Windows 7 RC1 Available Starting May 5th


By Chris Scott Barr

I’ve been using the Windows 7 beta on one of my desktops for a couple of months now. Honestly, I haven’t noticed any more issues with it than on my XP or Vista installations. Naturally I’m looking forward to the actual release of the OS, but for now I have to wait patiently like the rest of the world. At least there’s a nice update coming down the pipes in short order.

Cinco de Mayo seems to be a pretty big day for going out and getting smashed, so you might want to download your copy of the Windows 7 Release Candidate early in the day. That’s right, the official release date for RC1 is May 5th. Actually on second thought, you might want to wait until the next day to install it. You don’t to be late for happy hour because you’re stuck troubleshooting a driver issue or something do you?
