The most anticipated product for this year is now available to public to test.
Windows 7, Microsoft’s next operating system is rumored to hit the shelves on October as revealed by Acer’s Vice President for Europe Massimo D’Angelo.
But for those excited to try the new operating system for free without compromising to pirating and cracking may download Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) on Microsoft’s website. Consumers can use the next flagship Windows OS on their PCs until June next year.
Microsoft says that Windows 7 RC can be downloaded until June.
You can almost run Windows 7 on any machine with lower specs than Vista OS. The minimum system requirements are as follows:
- 1 GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
- 1 GB of RAM (32-bit)/2 GB of RAM (64-bit)
- 16 GB of available disk space (32-bit)/20 GB (64-bit)
- DirectX 9 graphics device with Windows Display Driver Model 1.0 or higher driver
DX9 capable cards ranges from Nvidia’s Geforce FX series and ATI’s Radeon 9500 series. If you have that GPU then you can enable the fancy Aero desktop.
