Breaking News: Windows 7 Beta 1 Availability

image Only 35% left to go on my download of Windows 7 from the TechNet Plus Subscription site.  Yes indeed… as expected, SteveB let loose the availability of the first public beta of Windows 7 during his keynote address at CES.

And almost to the moment he announced it, the PressPass article went live, and the download showed up on the TechNet site.  As TechNet Subscribers, we have this benefit of being able to download the beta right now.  The rest of the world will have to wait.

“Awww!  Really?”

Yep.  Sorry.

“How long?”

January 9.

“This year?”

<sigh>  Yes.. exactly two days from now. 

“Oh!  Cool!”

I think so. 

I’m looking forward to reading (and writing) a lot of reviews of Windows 7 in the coming weeks and months.

  1. Yessir. I am already registered. Looking forward to it. I was just in LA (it seems like) for the PDC, but I didn’t get enough of the city for my first time there so I am happy to go back. You know if you are going yet? I am going to post soon on how the beta runs on my new MacBook. I want to see if I can beat Keith to it. 🙂

  3. Excellent.  I don’t know if I’ll be there yet.  If the TechEd Online folks want me back, I’ll be doing video and podcast interviews again.  That was a lot of fun.  Otherwise, I dunno.  I will find a way!
