Windows 7 RC Out

So the last item has you thinking about Windows 7. Want to try it? You can, and not just a beta, but a nearly done release candidate. RC1 has been out through BitTorrent for a while, and I even snuck a peek at it this week in Las Vegas (what software goes in Vegas stays in Vegas). 

You can now go the official route and get the RC direct from Microsoft. If you subscribe to MSDN or TechNet, the software is all yours. If not, just wait 'til next Tuesday when there will be an overall public beta.

With moves like XP Mode, the dirt-cheap pricing of PCs, and the stability and performance, Windows 7 is a far better bet than any I made in Vegas.
