Hi, I know the windows 7 RC is out and I am thinking of installing it on my pc. I am aware that sometime next year all the RC installed PCs will uninstall every 2 hours. Will this still happen if I use the microsoft technet subscription one that i got a while ago on that crazily busy thread?
Also, here are the stated min requirements:
* 1GHz processor (32- or 64-bit)
* 1GB of RAM
* 16 GB of available disk space
* Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128MB of memory (for the Aero interface)
This may be a stupid question but are these really enough? I have a 1.6 GHz processor so how much ram will I need? I dont want it to be crawling really slowly but it doesnt need to be very fast either. Its just 1GB memory seems a little small to me If W7 is as RAM hungry as vista.
Basically I just want to try it out so I dont really mind if it will only be valid till next year, I am just wondering what the recommmended specs would be. I was planning on reinstalling xp on it anyway but i thought it might be cool to stick W7 on it (its not my main pc).
