Submission + - Windows 7 RC available, like you didn't know (

caller9 writes: Like anyone didn't know: Windows 7 RC is available for download. Fun to play with, starts dying on March 1st 2010 when your computer(VM) will reboot every two hours. Typical Redmond stuff. However it can run in a VirtualBox VM with a measley 512MB RAM and 64MB video card. The W7Forums VirtualBox Guide has some good, if slightly outdated for the latest Sun VirtualBox version, instructions. Windows 7 is an option in the VM creation wizard now, Windows Other need not be used. Nothing magical happens after install, just a sense of conformity and apologetic self-loathing. I'll watch my karma disappear now. I did say VM several times, on top of a Linux there's that, see you in hell.
