Vista betas, RCs near termination date


As promised, Microsoft Corp. has been warning users of early versions of Windows Vista that the operating system will be crippled starting Friday. In pop-up messages, Microsoft has told users to: "Back up important data from Windows now. The Windows license will expire in X days. Back up your files, and then install any edition of Windows Vista." Unless Vista Ultimate Beta 2, Release Candidate 1 (RC1) and RC2 are upgraded to a legal copy by Friday, machines running those editions will automatically reboot every two hours. This crippled state will continue until Aug. 28, at which point the operating system will refuse to boot.
