Attend PDC to receive your pre-beta Windows 7
If you are lucky enough to find yourself in Los Angeles around the 27th – 30th October, make sure you pop in at the Professional Developers Conference 2008 (PDC 2008). Attending developers will be getting an early version of Windows 7 to take home, according to a blog post by Microsoft.
“With Windows 7 at PDC2008 you will see advances across the full range of Windows–including the kernel, networking, hardware and devices, and user-interface,” Microsoft said.
Microsoft pointed out that Windows 7 won’t include email, photo-editing and movie making applications as reported earlier. These will however be available as downloadable Windows Live applications.
Windows also suggested that a late 2009 release date would be likely for Windows 7.
