Windows 7 RC To Start Shutting Down Real Soon Now

For those of you who are too cheap to buy a copy still running of the release candidate Windows 7, the end is near. Don’t believe me? You might want to pay a visit to the Windows Team Blog:

“For the RC, bi-hourly shutdowns will begin on March 1st, 2010. You will be alerted to install a released version of Windows and your PC will shut down automatically every 2 hours. On June 1st, 2010 if you are still on the Windows 7 RC your license for the Windows 7 RC will expire and the non-genuine experience is triggered where your wallpaper is removed and ‘This copy of Windows is not genuine’ will be displayed in the lower right corner above the taskbar.”

That would be one month from now. So it’s time to pay up for your copy of Windows 7. After all, you wouldn’t want to starve Microsoft of its well deserved cash now would you?
