As promised, on May 5th(late Monday evening ?) Microsoft released the Release Candidate build (7100) to all users through Microsoft’s Customer Preview program. The good news is that RC build will work nicely for about 13 months. That’s right, Microsoft will give users until June 1st, 2010 to run the darn thing. That’s pretty generous.

Although from March 1, 2010, your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. Windows will notify you two weeks before the bi-hourly shutdowns start. To avoid interruption, you’ll need to install a non-expired version of Windows before March 1, 2010

Along with the download, Microsoft has provided a brief set of instructions that should be thorough enough to get your installation up and running.

Both the 32 and 64-bit version are available now in five languages: English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese. You’ll need to sign in with your Windows Live ID and fill out a brief form first, unless you already did so for the Beta. In that case, your previous details should be pre-filled.

System Requirements for Windows 7

With the RC, Microsoft is also providing guidance on the minimum system requirements for Windows 7, showing that Windows 7 will work on a broader array of hardware than any other release of Windows at launch:

  • 1GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 GB of RAM (32-bit)/2 GB of RAM (64-bit)
