Windows 7 Beta No Longer Available for DL

Windows fans who have been meaning to get around to downloading the Windows 7 Beta have officially missed the boat. The Beta is officially offline as of today. Those in the midst of downloading have until February 12 to complete their download and those who have yet to get a product key can do so at their leisure.

Users who visit the download page are now being greeted with “Sorry, Windows 7 Beta downloads are no longer available. If your download was interrupted, you can still finish it. And, you can still register for a product key or look up the key you've already gotten.”

There’s also a few reminders for Beta testers, like watching the release notes for updated reports on bugs and fixes.

We’ve been writing about all things Windows 7 for a while but one thing we haven’t done is ask you guys what you think of it -- what do you think of the six versions of Windows 7; which version will you be getting; or if you’re upgrading to Windows 7 at all. Let us know in the comments section below!

    What Vista should have been.

    This doesn't change the fact that there is very little new. I'm more excited about what will be in NT 7.0 (Windows 7 is ironically NT 6.1).

    Amusing since I had to get a torrent version as the one from Microsoft kept crapping out during download.

    Looking at what I see, the speed at which they release new versions, I am hoping that Windows 8 will be more to my liking. I am sticking with XP until I can no longer play the games I like on it. They will probably be releasing a windows 7.1, 7.11, 7.5 and 7.999 between now and when when they actually make a new OS and charging for each service pa.. um new release.
