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!
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).
Like I've been saying on my blog, I really like what I've seen so far. I hope I can have enough cash to buy the Ultimate, but Home Premium wouldn't be too bad for me either.
I put it on my new built machine and am loving the faster boot and shutdown times. This looks like it should be a hit, (slicker and faster). I like the new task bar. I will be switching all my Vista machines over to this when released.It will make my laptop respond faster and leaner.
LOL Here we are in 2009, and their latest Beta Windows 7 still shows a Copyright of 2007. But, then again... perhaps Microsoft is just admitting what everyone else already claims. Windows 7 is just Vista with patches...?
About Windows 7, It's a Vista with new look and with some reprogramming and solving some vista bugs that results ====> New OS with XP speed!!! (and little up!) so until now, no revolution happened here!
About Download! I was downloading it through torrent, coz bad Microsoft server problems!
