Microsoft: We Will Start Shutting Down Your Windows 7 Release Candidate Every 2 Hours Until You Pay Up

Gotcha Suckers. 
Microsoft has it made.

  • Implement a new round of Digital Rights Management schemes to prevent Serial # sharing
  • Offer people free access to their beta products to get them hooked.  (I am not complaining.  I willingly did so)
  • Put controls into the software so that at a certain period of time it shuts down every 2 hours and then beyond a certain date won't even boot at all
This is why I am taking Windows 7 off of my kid's computer and replacing it with Ubuntu.
