Windows RC1 Is Going To Piss Off Everyone


The RC will expire on June 1, 2010. Starting on March 1, 2010, your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. Windows will notify you two weeks before the bi-hourly shutdowns start. To avoid interruption, you’ll need to install a non-expired version of Windows before March 1, 2010. You’ll also need to install the programs and data that you want to use.



I am pretty sure that by that time, there will be tonns of cracks going around the net, so there really won't be much of an issue, but the guys over at Microsoft seriously have to start thinking about not ticking off users anymore.

Honestly, I really couldn't care less. I am very happy with my Mac and there is nothing that is going to drag me back to the medieval times of Microsoft Windows, but I do have some friends who insist on remaining savages (you should see their face contort, every time Windows throws a fancy incomprehensible error on their screens).

Just for the record, I have worked (for a few minutes) on Windows 7 - and I must admit, it's not bad (For a Windows OS). It seemed like the mistakes with Vista were sorted out (finally), and a windows user could now get a chance to do some work on his netbook before the day ended or the battery conked off.

But stunts like this is what ticks of people the most.
