Well, October 22 is fast approaching, thatís when Win 7 is to be officially distributed to the general public. Manufactures already have their hands on the RTM, making sure they are ready to sell their Win 7 systems.

Some Vista Ultimate users are threatening a law suit if they can get Microsoft to offer them a discount on Windows 7. Some of you may remember that when Vista was first introduced by Microsoft, they have promised to provide Vista Ultimate users ďextrasĒ. These extras were the main reason why some users opted to pay a premium price for Vista Ultimate. However, after delivering a few of these applications, Microsoft stopped short of its promise.

Many Vista Ultimate users felt cheated and are asking Microsoft to offer them the chance to get Windows 7 either free or at a discount. I canít say I blame them as most were in fact deceived into buying Vista Ultimate. Iím sure thereís more to come on this issue.

Finally, I have been working on my Your Free Software Sitewebsite. Itís still work in progress, but you can take a look at its progress. Thereís a lot of work to be done, but itíll get there.

You have until August 20, 2009 to download and try Windows 7 RC. Installing Windows 7 on your system is an excellent way to find out if your system and applications can handle this new operating system. Windows 7 Release Candidate

To stay up-to-date about Windows 7, including special offers (many users received free copies of Vista last year Ė I personally received two free copies) sign up to be a Springboard Series Insider. https://profile.microsoft.com/RegSys...524a&lcid=1033

Donít forget to check my website. Itís still work in progress, but has started to take shape. Your Free Software Site

As I had mentioned here previously, Windows 7 RTM is already in the hands of manufactures. Sometimes next week I will get a chance to take the RTM for a spin. I donít expect it to be any different than the RC though. Either way, Iíll be posting about my thoughts about this RTM here, especially about any changes or differences between it and the RC.

If you havenít done so, please visit my website. Though itís work in progress, it has plenty of information about free software, including free operating systems. Though I doubt that any of the listed OSs will be able to replace Windows, some are great alternatives. For example, ReactOS is an operating system based on Microsoft NT with the look and feel of Windows XP. It can even run Windows drivers and applications.

And, also, donít miss our first SoftDorm newsletter coming this week; itíll include a step-by-step process to backup the data of your new acquired computer.

Never had a problem with W7, been the most stable OS I've ever used, only problem I ever had was with Nvidia drivers and with the latest ones no problems at all?
