    I know. I thought that you would have to sign up and then if you signed up in the first so many they would give it to you tomorrow.

    After doing some further research looks like they will put the download link up tomorrow. Once they hit 2.5 million downloads they will close it. All you have to download is an iso. So with this iso there will most likely be no registration required so we can just spread the one iso around correct?

    With the beta if you download it from their website most likely you will not need a key. The only way I can see that you might need a key is if they send one to you via email.

    I'm on the beta right now. It's build 7000, and it's been available on torrents for a few weeks. I think you'll need a key, because this one needs a key. It's also been cracked already, look in the usual places.


    And imo this beta of Windows 7 is better than Windows Vista by far. I would definitely get it tomorrow if I were you guys.

    Im staying up to get this, since Im sure you dont have to burn it to a disk, and Im to lazy to download it from somewhere and burn it.
