Default Windows 7 Beta available 1/9/09

I'm not sure if this was posted, but my friend just sent me this, apparently, a limited download will be available on Friday. It might have something to do with CES.

EDIT: This link had a news post regarding Windows 7, the link is now dead.

Well apparently MSDN is not handing out keys, the website is erroring out when trying to get one.

Steve Ballmer announced last night that MSND/Technet would receive the beta builds last night. Public beta goes up on Friday. Public keys will be available then.

It's up. With Key's and details.

I'll grab the x64 build when I have my new HTPC finished. It's still a work in progress.

For the retail builds. The checked builds (debug) are slightly smaller.

My spare rig is still in pieces from the other day or I could start installing this.

Make sure you grab that patch too unless you want it to eat your MP3 files.

*sigh* I can't go back to my friend's house to download the x64 version, guess I'll have to stick with x32 for now. I "might" put it on as my primary OS. Anyone know if you can UPGRADE from XP with it?
