Microsoft has announced that it offer 2.5 million downloadable copies of Windows 7 beta for free! But as always there are couple of catches tagged with the “FREE” keyword
The beta will expire on August 1st 2009. Wow! So generous of you Mr. Blatter. Take a bow!
The Beta version being released is the upgrade version, so it can only be installed on top of Vista.
The Windows 7 Beta will be available in English, German, Japanese, Arabic, and Hindi, and each language will be available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
In case you don’t mind the 2 catches above and you do not know what Torrents and peer-to-peer systems are, then take a note that download is available from January 9th HERE. Watch out before hitting the link though: if you’ve not got the latest version of Silverlight installed, it can (and it will) cause browsers to crash.
