Beta VS RC

Beta: Will not have the fixes that RC has to offer, also has many problems compared to RC.

RC: Will be receiving updates from MS periodically, bug fixes and new stuff that is not offered in the Beta.

Win7 7260 good till 10-01-2010

You really should upgrade to a newer release.
many have an extended expire date.
Plus you can rearm x3. ea rearm is 30 days, so 30 x3 is add 90 days to expire date. then If your really GOOD, you can reset the -rearm back and get another 30 days. That means If i keep this version #. 7260 It will be good until: 6-01-2010 plus 120 days = 9-01-2010 and If Im good I can reset rearm for another 30 days... WOW, 10-01-2010. That is 1yr4mo.

Only updates that were released prior to RC.

Updates after RC are for RC only.

You do not need upgrades, if you install the newer releases... they include all the fixes - patches that the CORE Testers need.
Consider the .vhd releases sort of like SP1, thru SP4 and so forth.,
Plus RTM will be out VERY SHORTLY.

What I ment was,

Well heres an example..



Windows 7 Build 7000 (beta) - Had an unstable version of IE8, was rather insecure, had some compatibility issues.

Windows 7 Build 7100 (RC) - Has a Stable version of IE8 (which is removable), is more secure then Build 7000, most compatibility issues have been fixed.

The beta 7000 builds will be going toast in less then two weeks times when it will start shutting itself down automatically after 2hrs. of use. You boot up and 2hr.s later kapoosh!

Prior to the RCs being relesed IE 8 was final and readily avialable for XP and Vista. MS waited until everything was signed off by the internal tester on schedule for the actually late 5:58pm MS local time availablility of the RCs on time for 5/5/2009.

Once 3/1/2010 arrives next year the same shutdown every 2hrs. condition will start with the RC and anything else. By that time most will already have upgraded to finished version anyways. MS simply saw a self destruct coding included so people couldn't run any build indefinitely.
