Just under half hour ago Microsoft released the Windows 7 Beta 1 for public viewing, hurry in and get on the wagon because it can only fit 2.5Million people.

Grab a copy whilst its still hot from the direct links below, from TechNet Evaluation Centre or the Windows 7 home and your personal key from here (currently down).

Download: Windows 7 Beta 1 (x86) | Windows 7 Beta 1 (x64)

No doubt the servers will be are being hammered, alternatively, you can use your Microsoft Connect, MSDN, or TechNet for subscribers and testers.


If you do download the Windows 7 Beta and you have a healthy collection of MP3s, make sure you download the patch that was released to fix a serious bug that may cause your MP3s to stop working. This is all documented in Microsoft Knowledgebase Article 961367. Download links for x86 and x64.


UPDATE (8AM Australian EST – 10/01):

“Due to very heavy traffic we’re seeing as a result of interest in the Windows 7 Beta, we are adding some additional infrastructure support to properties before we post the public Beta today. We want to ensure customers have the best possible experience when downloading the Beta, and will be in touch once the Beta goes live.”
