Get the Windows 7 Beta Soon

If you haven’t done the download for Windows 7 just yet, and you are still thinking about killing your bandwidth for a while, then you only have a few more days to do it!  The download has been extended for a little while longer and will end on February 10th.  The following timeline is from the official Windows Team Blog:

  • Starting January 27th, the Windows 7 page will be updated with a warning that time is running out on downloading the Windows 7 Beta and that we will be limiting downloads shortly. People will be encouraged to register and start the download of the Windows 7 Beta sooner rather than later.
  • February 10th, new downloads of the Windows 7 Beta will no longer be available. People who have already started their Windows 7 Beta download and have not yet finished will still be able to finish their download and are encouraged to do so.
  • February 12th, people will no longer be able to complete their download of the Windows 7 Beta. Anyone who hasn’t finished downloading the Windows 7 Beta will be unable to do so.


  1. Sure you can install it whenever. It expires in september 2009 though, so as long as you install it before then it will work.

  2. isn’t it a bit pointless as as far as I know there are only 5 different keys being used for all the registrations…

    sure you won’t be able to get it straight from MS but still…
