    Time Limit on RC Win8


    I was told that afetr I install Win8 RC it will only be usable for 60 days. Then it quits.

    Is this true?

    If Windows 8 follows the same course as Windows 7 - it has so far - RC will be usable for 10 months after release.

    Thanx!

    I was getting ready to dump Win8!

    I always devote one of my computers to Betas!

    For the record my first use of punched cards was an NCR book keeping system with "Patch Panels" & punched cards. Before the "Days" of "electronics". Then came "IBM"!!!
