..... though im sure about 500 gazillion people are trying to access the server right now....

i dont care though, im gonna keep hitting the refresh button.

just hope nobody thought it would be funny to do a ddos attack right now.... it would seem like something someone who hates ms would do, and dont get me wrong, i dont care too much for them myself, but i like free beta, and iv been wanting to check out this new windows 7 to see if it's really that much better than vista.

only reason why I say this is cause im pretty damn sure that microsoft would have thought about the bandwidth compensation for something like this... or at least I hope... just hope they had more than their mcse..

Server is too busy

And for the torrent and news sites, be carefull what you downlaod. I hear some of these are just versions of vista with Windows 7 themesand resoruce edits embedded in them to look like windows 7, only they have back doors and such put in the the install process. Better safe than sorry, wait for the site to come back up or share with friends who have legit copies. I just don't trust windows from torrents and nntp downlaods.

You still need a key for it to work after 30 days.

Microsoft has postponed, at least for a short time, making the beta of Windows 7 publicly available.

The move comes as Microsoft has struggled to keep its Windows 7 Web site up on Friday.

Ya think? Yeah, next time, prepare a bit more in advance. If they were smart, they would have seeded their own torrent of it in advance with a private tracker, put a few out for people to serve it up, then make the tracker public once they have some copies out and ready to go. HTTP downloads are getting to be an old fashioned way of reachin gyoru customers, and this is one place where I can see a perfectly legit reason for a Bit Torrent. Especially if they were to have worked with the major torrent sites to help them release it, this could have been smooth sailing for them and their customers.

Yeah, the direct links work for me, but the downloads keep failing. If windows really wanted this to work, they would have released this as bittorent about 6 hours early, then offer direct download on a different server. (not even in the same datacenter)

ya had the same problem but just keep trying my first was 1800kb/sec and then would drop to zero but second try was straight and steady 1800+ kb/sec now everyone just has to wait for the product keys...lets hope they come soon
