    Windows 7 RC

    Microsoft has released Windows 7 RC. It's basically a free version of windows 7 that you can try out for 1 years times. If anyone has an spare PC and are interested in trying it out.

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/download.aspx

    I wouldn't put it on my primary PC but it is simple installation for the non IT professionals.
    Have fun!

    awesome.
    I tried the beta version, and it ran very well on my computer.

    I plan on upgrading to 7 at some point.
    Its about time microsoft did something right.

    It's better than the beta if you ask me. My only issues is that my graphics card on my laptop is not compatible (lazy ass ATI) so I am running at only 1024 X 768. I some how manage to get it to accept my sound card even though vista didn't like it. All in all I actually prefer vista's gui to 7's but.

    Office 2007(i just downloaded) is crap!

    His spreadsheet is scribbled on the piece of cardboard he tore off a case of the beast.

    I've used it for over a year now and still don't know where everything is.
    my alternate is going back to office 2K since I don't have 2003.

    I get what they were trying to do and certain changes make sense. However, it's very dificult to manual manage the changes in tabs, margins and formats in a document that wasn't created in 2007. If anyone wants a copy let me know.

    yup, and the new visio's going to that format too.
    I haven't had a chance to play with that yet, but i'm not looking forward to it.
