With the RTM now of Windows 7, there will still be many of you out there who will have the RC (all of us as of now as it still isn’t available . There will also be others of you (like me) who have installed the RC in various places and won’t have the time to get to installing the gold code right away, so for the time being will stick with the RC. One important thing to point out:
The RC will completely expire on June 1st, 2010 however it will begin rebooting as from March 1, 2010…
Morale of the story, don’t lull yourself in to a false sense of security. When you get your hands on the gold code, install it. Oh yeah, and that’s another thing….There will be workarounds as we’re all sure no doubt, as to how to upgrade from RC to RTM, however DO NOT DO THIS. Why? Differences in code, potentially nagging issues that might have cropped up in the RC from testing, etcetera etcetera, etcetera. Migrate your data, store it somewhere else or whatever, but your best experience when going to RTM will be a fresh install – and don’t forget about RC’s reboots.
