Windows 7. Download If You Dare

Windows 7 will be released in beta to anyone who wants to download it beginning this Friday, January 9th. Despite the fact that the beta will likely be buggy and have a ways to go until it is ready for Prime Time, I’m just betting a bunch of us are going to download it and start playing with it.

I know I am. I have a laptop sitting here with nothing to do. It was very high-end for its time, which means it has pretty good RAM and hard drive space as well as a decent processor, so I’m sure it can take Windows 7, even though it couldn’t take Vista.

Who’s with me? Anyone willing to sacrifice a machine to try out the beta? I mean, what’s the worst that can happen? I still have my original install disks and can go right back to XP on my test machine, no problem. So what’s the risk?

Windows 7 Beta can be downloaded here.

    Problem being Susabelle is that you do have to have Windows Vista SP1 installed on your PC to be able to install the Windows 7 Beta. They say People with WinXP need not apply. So you will need to install Vista on your laptop before the install of Windows 7. Good Luck.
