Windows 7 beta 1 available until January 24th

by ron on January 12, 2009

Windows 7 beta 1 was officially launched at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week.
Microsoft servers then got jammed with tens of thousands of people wanting to download the beta.
Microsoft proceeded to upgrade their servers in order to deal with this huge traffic storm, and have now stated that they will make Windows 7 beta 1 available to anyone who wants it until January 24th 2009.

After Jan 24th, Microsoft will limit the availability of the beta to 2.5 million people.

That may sound like a big number, but if you plan to evaluate Windows 7 beta 1, then I would suggest that you get your copy prior to Jan 24th.

Here is the download link:
