The Windows 7 Release Candidate will cease to be available for download on 15th August, so if you want to try it you need to get a move on within the next three weeks or so.

by popular demand. Microsoft has been pleasantly surprised by the huge positive response to the RC, and obviously wants to 'hook' as many potential purchasers as possible.

'wants to 'hook' as many potential purchasers as possible.'

I certainly took the bait. I thought Vista was good but Windows 7 - absolutely brilliant!

I thought Vista was rubbish, but also think W7 is brilliant!

I remember saying, on here, that the Vista GUI was the greatest improvement since the introduction of the ’Shell’ in MS-DOS 6.

Unfortunately, there are no superlatives left to describe Windows 7.

I lent my neighbour a PC loaded with Windows 7. They have used Vista and XP for some time. However they are really enthusiastic about W7. Their view is "Quicker to open, and just more friendly and intuitive to use than either Vista or XP".
I used to be a strong supporter of XP but it feels outdated and clunky compared to W7RC. As soon as I feel assured that the 64bit version has settled down that will go on to most of my PC's.

"I thought Vista was rubbish, but also think W7 is brilliant!" - same here.

'Their view is "Quicker to open, and just more friendly and intuitive to use than either Vista or XP".' - very possibly why I like it too. G
