Windows 7 Beta No Longer Available for DL

Windows fans who have been meaning to get around to downloading the Windows 7 Beta have officially missed the boat. The Beta is officially offline as of today. Those in the midst of downloading have until February 12 to complete their download and those who have yet to get a product key can do so at their leisure.

Users who visit the download page are now being greeted with “Sorry, Windows 7 Beta downloads are no longer available. If your download was interrupted, you can still finish it. And, you can still register for a product key or look up the key you've already gotten.”

There’s also a few reminders for Beta testers, like watching the release notes for updated reports on bugs and fixes.

We’ve been writing about all things Windows 7 for a while but one thing we haven’t done is ask you guys what you think of it -- what do you think of the six versions of Windows 7; which version will you be getting; or if you’re upgrading to Windows 7 at all. Let us know in the comments section below!

    Wow, I have literally just finished the download 2 hours ago!

    Been running it for around two weeks now and so far I'm impressed although the compressed folder issue has carried over from vista.
    This issue (in case nobody has come across it) is where you download a largeish file (graphics drivers for instance) and then try to decompress the files for install.
    This process seems to take an age to complete and the larger the content of the folder, the longer the process takes.
    anything up to around a couple of hundred mb. is tolerable but over that, forget it! the folder will freeze up and report an error leaving you angry and frustrated and with no option but to use third party software such as winrar or winzip where the problem dissapears.
