Window 7 Beta Woes

Susan Hall

It got off to a rocky start, but the official English Windows 7 site went live about 11 a.m. ET Friday. But CNET News' Ina Fried reported the download wasn't available as of 12:25 ET.


She said Microsoft recommends going through this link.


Since the beta will be available to only the first 2.5 million people who download it, as Ars Technica points out, no doubt it will be hammered.


Before that, it was available on the Chinese (English translation) Microsoft Technet site as a a 32-bit and 64-bit download, but was spilling out errors. It also will be available in German, Japanese, Arabic and Hindi.

it was good experience with read whole headlines but there is little bit confusion to continue with that news there should be some short link at last of the headline so that we can easily continue with the whole news. thanking gunjeet singh9818053179 Reply

I actually can't remember the last time a Windows OS came along that I've wanted to upgrade to. Maybe Windows 2000 was the last time, but that's because I couldn't wait to jump onto the NT kernel after having suffered through the days of Windows 9x for most of my computing youth.

A good read:
