Back to the thread topic ... Windows will install and function for a 30 day period without entering the key. 7RC does this as well with the stringent rules set aside because it is Beta/RC.

In my opinion, you should want to activate your 7RC. You will be asked for the key when you do, so you can enter it then. Remember, activated copies of the RC qualify as an upgrade path to the retail 7 upgrade (when it ships in Oct). That means you don't have to purchase the $199 full version (of 7 Home Premium, at this writing) or retire a copy of XP or Vista to apply the upgrade.

Activating 7RC is like: "Done already?"
