Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced at CES that Windows 7—the highly anticipated followup to Windows Vista—will be available as a free, public download on Friday, January 9. Windows 7 Beta has been out in the wild (i.e., BitTorrent) since December, but if you've been waiting for things to get a little more legit before you tried it out, you won't have to wait much longer.


Pretty cool. I can't believe they're offering it as a free download. I'm definitely downloading it. Thought you guys might also like the heads up.

I'm content with XP. I was afraid to get Vista on my new computer, and I'm afraid of downloading a Beta of Windows anything xD I'll wait until it's official and I've heard positive things about it. Maybe Vista was a decoy, you know, you make Windows 7 look amazing haha

I'm still using XP, because, from what I've heard, Vista isn't amazing. XP is fine. :P

Me too - Still using XP. Not terribly impressed with Vista(64).

If you've been trying to download Windows 7 Beta and saw the "not available right now due to inadequate servers" message, the download became available today. It's a 2.4GB download!

FWIW this Beta version will expire on August 1st, 2009.

Also, Remember, it is a Beta version.

The more important question, is it faster?

Ok... does it seem faster?
Edit: err... compared to what? What did you upgrade from?


Other questions:
How did the install go?
Can it be installed as dual-boot?

I upgraded from Vista and it appears faster. The boot in time also takes approximately 30 seconds whereas it took about 1.5 minutes before.

My father downloaded this.

Using BitTorrent. Australia sucks in not only does it have an internet limit, but uploads are also counted towards said limit.

Needless to say, he has managed to suck up 9gb of bandwidth in one day - the first of our billing cycle.

I have a hatred already :P


Gone, forever.

I just partitioned my hard drive. So far so good! Though many of the video game anti-cheat programs don't like it.
