Windows 7 Release Candidate 1 can be downloaded now from here: Windows 7 RC1 Download. Microsoft makes use of a Java based download manager so ensure you have an up-to-date version of this from Sun..or Oracle, whoever they are now.

Alternatively, here are some plain URLs which you can paste into your browser…so they don’t see me as referrer 🙂 If simply pasting into the browser doesn’t work and takes you to the Windows 7 download page as above, paste the link directly into your download manager of choice, e.g. Downthemall extension for Firefox.

Windows 7 RC1 64bit:

I can’t wait to try out the remote media sharing and XP virtualisation as mentioned by Paul Thurrott. All I need now is a CPU that supports virtualisation. This release of Windows 7 will work until the 1st of June, 2010 but you will get shutdowns after two hours from the 1st of March, 2010!
