Who wants a Windows 7 RC DVD?

Update: They’re all gone. Sorry.

Microsoft sent me eight packages containing official DVD copies of the Windows 7 Release Candidate. It appears to be 32-bit (x86) only.

I don’t need them, but I figured some of my readers might, so I’m offering them up here. If you’ve got a low-bandwidth connection and you don’t want to go through the hassle of downloading and burning a DVD, this could be useful.


1. U.S. addresses only. These are U.S. English copies and I don’t want to mess with foreign postage. Sorry.

2. You have to go online and get your own product key. Instructions are in the package.

3. No tech support is included. 😉

To qualify, leave a comment below. Use your real e-mail address when you comment (otherwise how can I contact you to get shipping details?). In the comment, include the Windows 7 feature that you are most interested in learning more about.

  1. I would like to know more about improved performance on multi-core processors.

  2. I would like a copy please. I also sent a direct email from your Contact page. Thanks for making them available.

  3. I don’t need the DVD, Ed, but I’d like an article on what the new Win 7 Media Center will, and will not, do.

  4. I would like the RC DVD. I am most interested in backup software and networking in Windows 7.

  5. Ed,
    I am very interested in the touch screen tech in Windows 7. That sounds so neat to me for home use.

    I would like a DVD if any are still available.

  6. Sound Improvements (continuing to play media while switching outputs or modes).

  7. Would love a copy, thanks! Primarily to see what’s up w/ networking issues

  8. I am interested in security in windows 7. I would also like a copy of dvd. thanks

  9. The new taskbar. I heard it has a lot of new features but I don’t know any of them. Same look but many treats behind it. 😀

  10. Ed, will pass on the DVD, so strike me off the list. As far as articles. something in depth about Media Center and Digital Cable Tuners.

    I have been curious about the complete plans on how CableCard tech will work on 7. With Vista it took a specialized version of the OS only available to special OEM’s. What’s the plan with 7?

  11. The Windows 7 feature I want to learn most about is the virtual wireless adapter. Since someone already said that, I am also interested in Win 7’s handling of HDCP and other DRM. I do a lot of presentations with video clips, and I don’t really want DRM to stop me from making a visual point.

  12. I am interested in using Media Center as well as the new streaming features in Media Player.

  13. hi ed,

    just wanted to let you know that i would be interested in the windows 7. please let me know.

    thank you,


  14. Great blog, Ed. I’d be interested in one of those RC DVDs you’ve got. Thanks for your consideration!

  15. I am most interested in how it allows you to use a full version of XP that is built in to it.

  16. Ed,

    I’m a 63 yr old man, retired from a software company that would
    interested in a dvd copy of Windows 7 RC. I’m currently running
    Windows Vista.

    With my contract with Verison Broadband ” wireless ” we are
    limited to 5gb of data a month and the size of Windows 7
    could put me over the limit.

    I would greatly appreciate a copy of the above software !

    Thank You,

  17. Hello Ed,

    Thank you for the offer of the dvd it is much appreciated since I only have a dialup connection. I have been interested in seeing if it is really faster then Vista and more reliable as stated.

  18. I’m looking forward to the superbar the most, but I also am looking forward to the overall speediness of the machine, as compared to vista. Not to mention the advancements in stability.
