I must admit, it is a much needed improvement over Vista. Its still REALLY!!! buggy and has a few connection issues regarding WLM 9. But thats beta.


As far as signing up for the beta there is not that I know of, and last I heard the publuic beta was set to start eairly '09 and it should be final by late '09 or eairly '10

Public beta o.O? Where did you hear that from? I've never seen any OS that Microsoft is working on be entered into a public beta.

Technically, Windows Vista was a public beta (I know it was an RC, but it was released as a public beta for feedback). And yes, early 09 Windows 7 is going to be released as a public beta! msn_happy.gif

Windows 7 is a public beta.

It was available for download (with Key) for a little while. However the key runs out in Oct and the beta will become invalid....
