Windows 7 Beta Blocker

Windows 7 is pretty much done, as the release-to-manufacturing (RTM) version has been, er, released. That's good news for IT and great news for the economy. But it's not so hot for those beta testing either Visual Studio 2010 or .NET Framework 4. The three just don't get along.

The good news? Betas don't last forever and no one says a VS or .NET beta tester has to upgrade straight away.

I also learned that release candidate users such as myself have to do a clean install of the Windows 7 RTM, and not just upgrade in place. No biggie. The RC works a lot better than XP, so I'm in no hurry.
