Windows A little earlier than expected, Microsoft has already released the Windows 7 release candidate to the general public. The Redmond company had already put the RC up for download on TechNet and MSDN, but from now on, everyone can download it. I've already updated all my Windows machines to the RC, so let's take a quick look at what I found. Note: The Windows XP Mode beta is also set to arrive today, but has not yet been made available. We'll update this item accordingly once it's released. Update: The Windows XP Mode beta is also available. Get it now!

I agree. We all remember Window Me. Than Windows XP came out. Even though I prefer Ubuntu or any Linux distro to Windows for most of my daily tasks. I still dual boot between Windows and Ubuntu, mainly for certain games, astronomy apps, and photo-editing/video-editing software. Microsoft is trying their best to put out a way better product than Vista. They heard the gripes!. So now, hopefully, Windows 7 will be a better product than Windows Vista. The big question will be "price", which we haven't heard yet. We may all be surprised, it could be cheaper. Both operating systems have their advantages and disadvantages.
