[Beta] Windows 7 beta tomorrow
The Windows 7 beta has been circulating around the internet for awhile now, but circulating illegally unless you were picked to be apart of the closed beta.

At CES 2009 last night, CEO at Microsoft, Steve Ballmer, has finally announced that the Windows 7 beta will give everyone, well, mostly everyone, a chance to partake in the beta this Friday. And when I mean "mostly everyone", I mean.. the beta is limited to the first 2.5 million people. He didn't say exactly "when" the beta will be downloadable, all he said was this Friday. I'm thinking the beta will go live at midnight PST, but then again, it's anyone's guess. Could be early morning to PM. Guess we'll have to wait and find out.

Anyways... the beta will be available in two versions, x32 and x64, which is great. The two versions will come in the form of .ISO files, rather large .ISO files I'm sure.

Well, I'm definitely going to download both versions as I'm anxious to try 'em both out.

All I need to do now is head on over to Fry's after work tomorrow, buy a new H/D and a docking bay and I'll be set.

The Windows 7 beta can be downloaded via the Official Windows website.
