Yea, not on mine either. I don't ever remember them putting a beta on there.

same here but I find the x86 to be alot quicker. Also IE in x64 was crapping out alot with "the application has stopped responding" this was on a new, fresh install too.

Just moved from x86 to x64 and the x64 has felt a bit faster to me. There's not a big difference between the two versions and they're both much faster than vista(and that's the only thing that counts)!

Correct, the difference between the two of them is marginal. Also, x64 obviously allows me to ultilize all of my memory. However, I haven't experienced any problems with IE8 in the x64 version. I've been running the x64 version since Wednesday.

Windows 7
Over the past few years, you've asked us to make some changes to Windows. We listened closely. Now it's time to share an early look at how we've used your feedback. Windows 7 is faster, more reliable, and makes it easier to do what you want. Both the everyday things and the killer "is that really possible?" things. Dig into this site to see what's coming. Want to try the Beta? Come back the afternoon of January 9. And remember—this is just a preview. There's more to come.

So where do we go to download the beta? It's nowhere on that page.
