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.
When will my beta start shutting itself down automatically after 2hrs. of use?

Yep July 1 2009 is the drop dead date for 7000 (beta) but it could sstart shutting down every 2 nours before then as a warning. You should upgrade

Remember expiration dates: Please plan ahead for the Beta and RC expiration dates. To avoid interruption, you'll need to rebuild your test machine using a valid version of Windows before the software expires. Windows will notify you that the expiration process is beginning and two weeks later your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. The Beta expires on August 1, 2009, and bi-hourly shutdowns will begin July 1, 2009. The RC will expire June 1, 2010, and the bi-hourly shutdowns will begin on March 1, 2010. In both cases, you'll need to rebuild your test PC to replace the OS and reinstall all your programs and data.
