Microsoft Ends Windows 7 Release Candidate Downloads

Microsoft has pulled the plug early on downloads of the Windows 7 "Release Candidate," nixing availability of the upcoming OS's final test release.

Company spokespeople confirmed ... that the last chance to the Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) would be at the end of the day (Thursday August 20th). Instead, however, the chance to get a copy of Windows Vista's replacement expired Thursday morning.

Anybody know where to get a good copy of build 7600? I missed out on that one and I'm having issues with 7100.

It keeps locking up. It usually happens when I move the mouse or press a key to wake the monitors up. Either that or it won't let me do anything other than move the arrow around. It takes a few minutes for my inputs to go through. IE 8 is also having issues.

I have the IE8 problems, but the rest is pretty good...I don't use sleep mode or hibernate modes?
