OK, so I am a little late in posting this piece of news, but anyway. As of today Windows 7 RC and Windows XP mode is available to the public.

Microsoft states on its Windows 7 site that the RC will be available at least through July and that it will expire on 1 June 2010. Just a little heads up though; From 1 March 2010 the RC will begin shutting down every 2 hours!

If you want the bits you can go to Microsofts Windows 7 download site

On its Windows 7 site Microsoft provides guides on how to get the ISO files, how to mount them on DVDs and how to install the OS. I have written a lenghty guide on how to install the RC as well.

If you want to try out the Windows XP Mode for the RC that one is also available for download. Just a little notification before you do; Make sure that your hardware supports hardware virtualization. Ed Bott has written a great piece on it, with accompanying charts explaining which intel CPUs supports this feature and which ones that doesn’t.

Good Luck!
