During Steve Ballmer’s CES 2009 Keynote address tonight he more than confirmed the rumors that the Windows 7 Beta would be going public soon. It is going live on Friday and you can go and grab it from this link. You can find out more about Windows 7 here. I don’t think we’ll be installing the beta this weekend due to all the work we have ahead of us. (See how hard we’re working here.) So, if you go and grab it, make sure you post up your first impressions here in the comments or the GBM Forums.
