I know!  Usually M$ kills the RC's after maybe 6-months.  A one year period is unheard of.
I like it! big_smile

Seems as if the June 1st was not as accurate as Microsoft would have us believe.

Portion of an article on Neowin:

Watch the calendar. The RC will expire on June 1, 2010. Starting on 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. You'll also need to install the programs and data that you want to use.

Exactly. That part is less widely known. So I guess Microsoft is getting more credit than it deserves …
