are all beta builds set to expire on July 1st 2009? if not what is the actual date?
Microsoft had a Beta 1 and Beta 2. They insist that Windows 7 will not have a Beta 2 and that's why they just call it Beta.
I believe you are correct. I wouldn't be surprised If the next version of Windows 7 is the RTM. Because so far the Beta experience has been amazing, amazing to the point that I'm using it as my main every day OS.
I believe their may be an extension on the Beta period to all those that are either MSDN or technet subscribers but not for the public beta.
It won't be MS that is leaving them without a working OS, it will be themselves.What happens to all the people thrilled with the Win7 beta who transfer their main OS to this - and who are not MSDN or Technet subscribers? Are you thinking MS will leave them without a working OS?

This is a BETA version!
It is not meant to replace the main current working OS. It is meant for a testing platform, and nothing more.
If someone replaced their main OS with this beta (at least without a backup of what they need most), well, they are both stupid and ignorant.
