    win7 is right by that time you could have much better builds, best wait for the real public release (none beta's) then think about activating that perminently :)

    The only reason i could think is if you wanted to sell a freind your pc/laptop with win7 beta on, cause it would be rude selling a machine with an expiring OS lol.

    I'm assuming they are looking at or around a Mid to late july RTM, but we will see when the pre-rc builds are made available if the OS Expiration date expires. I assume though since these builds are expiring in July/August they plan on being very close to finished by that point. By the end of Q1 '09 we should see the first real RC.

    That is the info. I needed, many thanks. I am happy with Builds 6956 and 7000 just as they are for the time being, until the FINAL RELEASE.
