Windows 7 downloads to end on the 10th – get it now

I’ve been running Windows 7 since the public beta.  It is, I have to say, an extra ordinarily strong beta.  So much so I now run this on my work and home machine as the default OS and I have not looked back.  That is not to say it is without faults, but the fact that the screen resolution get’s stuck occasionally is not what I call a major fault.

So, the important thing is that the ability to download the beta is ending on the 10th of February.  If you intended on getting it, but “no just yet”, don’t delay.  Download it, get the key and then load at your leisure.

From the team in the UK:

The Windows 7 beta is only available until the 10th February to download, so get your copy now!

MSDN and TechNet Subscribers will continue to have access to the Windows 7 Beta bits throughout the Windows 7 Beta phase. The above dates do not apply to MSDN and TechNet Subscribers.

Product keys for the Windows 7 Beta will continue to be available. So if you have the Windows 7 Beta but didn’t get a product key you will be able to do so even after February 12th.
