Earlier in the week we reported that general availability for the Windows 7 beta was set to end February 10. At the time you all seemed pretty cool with it. Plenty of time left to download, right? Turns out not everyone is so sensible.
Before general availability has even ended, one eager user has started an online campaign demanding Microsoft get on with things and release the new operating system right now.
Kelly Poe of Tennessee has a petition up online and is campaigning for Microsoft to “let the beautiful little birdy fly.”
“I'm a BIG Windows fan and have been loving what Microsoft has done with the recent Beta Release of Windows 7. There have been so many great reviews from people like Leo and Paul Thurrott, needless to say I'm jones'n for the release of Windows 7.
So here we are...let's join together and get Micorsoft to release Windows 7™...enough with this Beta stuff...release it already!!! Let the beautiful little birdy (with the odd name) fly!!!"
While we’re eager to see what the full release of Windows 7 has to offer, we’re all for Microsoft taking all the time it needs to make sure the new release is as bug-free as possible upon release.
Just as a little memo, if you’re still looking to download the beta, get right on it. General availability ends Feb. 10 and unfinished downloads will only continue through to Feb. 12.
