Windows 7 RTM Ultimate - Activated (Technet)
 
 

You would think that most people knew about this wouldn't you....well they don't. The following is an actual post from a forum here in good old Australia..posted today.

Hi, I"ve had this reoccuring problem with my pc lately. About every hour or so, it turns itself off. This is not your normal shut down process, the whole thing just switches off straight away, by itself, as if the power was turned off. I sent it to a computer store thinking it'd be and overheating problem. The guy says my pc averages about 33 degrees which is quite normal for my kind of usage. So over heating's been ruled out. He now reckons it might be a software corruption that causes it to switch off. I'm running two operating systems on my pc, windows xp sp3 and windows 7 evaluation version. I havent run the windows xp frequent enough ever since the problem started to determine if it affects that side of my hard drive. However the problem occurs every time windows 7 is on. Any ideas? Thanks.

The sad part is that the "computer store" didn't know what it was....and it took 4 posts of "other" suggestions before someone asked which Windows 7 he was using.....

90% of the population would find a way to get themselves killed if it wasn't for the 10% of the population looking out for them.

Sad fact, really.

people get me. it states right in the original email with the key that the betas will do this. par for course for most people not to see what is right in front of their face. truth be told it is less than 5% of the people that really have any real sense. just comical.

Windows 7 runs so well that one might easily forget that it's a beta, RC, etc. if it wasn't for the expiry.
