Microsoft's Windows 7 Beta will start to spontaneously reboot every two hours beginning on Wednesday, the company has warned users.

Users running Windows 7 Beta can continue to use the new operating system without the sudden interruptions - the shutdowns come without warning -- by downloading and installing Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC)

As an aside.... The new survey regarding W7 does not include those who will buy a full copy of the OS. Since many here build machines, maybe a "Buy a full retail copy" question may be relevant?

I am planning to re-format my test machine this weekend, have you any "Inside" info regarding this so called "Free" upgrade?

See...1 year out of the loop, and they no longer advise me of these things :((

It wasn't that long ago that Microsoft mistakenly announced the shutdowns would start on 1st June. That probably cost someone their place on the annual works outing to the seaside.
