Windows 7: Windows Seven Release Date ... I Want Win 7 So Bad - Revamp

Windows Seven Release Date ... I Want Win 7 So Bad - Revamp

It's 2009 but I still have no idea if and when Windows 7 will be released in this year. Man I am keeping my fingers crossed for May to June. I have seen the screenshots and even a few imitation skins that allows a Windows 7 look ion Vista as a theme. They look great and I can just imagine how the real thing will look. I am not really a fan of the new taskbar yet but I may have to tweak settings to make it look as dark as Vista's. Everything else seems familiar even with a few improvements but pleasing none-the-less. As for Windows Media Player 12, I have not tried it yet but it looks interesting so it may grow on me. It's funny though how when Vista was coming out everyone wanted a copy and bittorrent was in full gear. PC people wanted to test it out by any means and bittorrent was the place. They even came out with pre-activated versions so people could use it permanently in x32, x64, etc. I heard people managed to achieve such things but others who tried the invalid route got a wake up call when Windows confirmations came up and froze the software OS. What will happen in Seven? Will there be tighter restrictions like as I mentioned or will it be looser with XP and ME? Or will piracy get the better of Microsoft? Will it be as easy to use Win 7 without having to enter a bag of keys from sources? MS has been giving away betas of Win 7 and it has been buzzed about for months now. Is this sincere or a trap? Is this some kind of reverse psychology thing to catch bootleggers? Whatever the outcome I want my Win 7 to install legally so I can get to enjoy so I hope Microsoft lets the cat out of the bag by June the latest.


What do you think?

You're kidding, right?


The Windows Beta 7 that is available from Microsoft is Legal. You can download it from here and get a product key.

Cool. I checked the page but I don't know if the beta expires or i can run the beta forever? What about the final product? Would I need a new key or can I use the beta key for the final? How much does a new key for Win 7 final expected to cost if there is such a thing?

The trial will end in august 09..As long as you use the product key they provide you with when down loading the beta 1..They are speculations
that they may come out with a new Beta 2 but no one knows this for sure
As for using the product key for the RTM when it comes out..No way
you will need to pay for the RTM version to get a key..They say the cost when its released will be less of than the vista ultimate cost was when it came out...Hope this helps you out some..
