i tried to get the beta of windows 7 but the web site is saying windows 7 is no longer available to download. is there somewhere else to get it? because I did get a cd key on the same site, but that key will do me a lot of good if i can't get the beta software.

    Accepted Solution

    Windows 7 (7000) is no longer available on Microsoft's sites # Edited by ModernMatt #.  I would suggest waiting as the Windows 7 (RC1) public beta will be released to the public on May 5.  Check the same Microsoft location as you did in your post on on around May 5 and you should be able to download it

    There is no legitimate site to download the public beta (build 7000) any more.  But the public Release Candidate will, according to the last I saw in a post on the internet, be available on May 5th.  Here's a good site for keeping up to date on Windows 7 news:

    If you wany ANY flavor of MS Windows and 50+ of their products (server OSs included) then you will likely want to buy a TechNet Plus subscription. If you search online for deals available you can get a subsciption for as little as $260.
    Seriously, MANY of the OSs this entitles you to include 10 license keys which you can use (exclusively) 10 times. Meaning one you uninstall one PC w/ key you can install it elsewhere. As a Geek, it's an invaluable investment.
    There are enough changes in Server 2008 and Windows 7 to REQUIRE the hands-on before you try to deploy either in your professional environment.

    Good Times !
