Default Windows 7 RC Available To Technet & MSDN

Pulling down both x86 and x64 right now. Won't get to installing it until this weekend, but definitely ready to retire the beta install.

Post thoughts, and or experiences with the RC here.

Default Re: Windows 7 RC Available To Technet & MSDN

If I have the beta installed and purchase 7 when its available, will I get a disc in the mail in case I need to wipe my HD and do a reinstall? I don't want to get stuck with my old beta disc and half to go through hoops to get it working.

Anyone have any idea how much W7 64bit will cost?

when you purchase the os, you will get disc of course, how else would customer install it.

and win7 will cost the same as vista, price will depend on what version you want.

I know it was a stupid question. I just thought that they may just give me a new key to make my beta legit. But I now realize that what I have is a beta and my question was just stupid

I've had the RC since Sunday and I really like it. A lot of my co-workers are curious about it, one even installed it over Vista just a few minutes ago. He LOVES it so far. Can't wait until the final version comes out.
