Reminder! Windows News: Windows Vista Beta 2, RC1, and RC2 Set to Expire

On May 31, 2007, the pre-release versions of Windows Vista will expire. This means that if you are running a pre-release version of Windows Vista (Beta 2, RC1, or RC2) you will begin to receive notifications about the upcoming expiration on May 18, 2007. To avoid work disruption and the loss of data, it is strongly recommended that if you are running any of these pre-release versions of Windows Vista, you migrate your PCs to the final version of Windows Vista before May 31.

To install the final version of Windows Vista on any of these pre-release versions of Windows Vista, you may purchase the desired Windows Vista Upgrade. The Windows Vista Upgrade must be the same language version as the pre-release version you are replacing.

    it would be nice to run vista BUT, i am one of those stupid people who bought a new pc to run vista back in january. it came bundled with an upgrade to vista home premium. it is now may and no sign of the upgrade from moduslink  (the programe run by moduslink ends may 31) so a lot of people in the UK are not happy bunnies.
