Windows 7 RC Downloads End Thursday

Users wanting to get their hands on the Windows 7 release candidate have one last day to do so. Microsoft will officially shut off and remove the download links Thursday around 11 a.m. ET.

The Windows 7 RC will remain fully active until March 1, at which time the OS will start shutting down every two hours. The software fully expires on June 1st at that time users will either have to pony up and purchase the new OS or reinstall another operating system.

Microsoft has slated Oct. 22 as the on-sale date for new PCs packing Windows 7, as well as for retail copies of upgrades to the operating system.

If you want to get your hands on the official download before the expiration date head over to the Windows 7 download page before its too late.
