Windows 7 Official Public Beta


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Earlier today Technet China has placed a link to Windows 7 Beta but it's not active yet, It was said that Microsoft will release the Beta sometime around 5th Jan US time, which it's only 4-5am in the morning.

http://technet.microsoft.com/zh-cn/evalcenter/default.aspx

Keep an eye on this page as it might be one of the first pages to make the link go live.

I know it's in Chinese but easy to navigate! Just convert the page using Google translator

http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=e...zh-CN&tl=en

So lets all keep a close eye on this baby :D

The 5th of Jan is looking promising. Or will it be 7th?

LOOKS LIKE 13th of JAN, CES 2009...we will all see the Beta release....You never know :)

You should at least get a license and activate your version so you can send in feedback and bug reports, you owe Microsoft at least that much.

I didn't say that, I said you should activate it properly when you get the chanse so you can send some feedback and bug reports so it may make Win7 better.

It could still be build 7000, but it will have updates (definitely an update to fix the MP3 issue).

...Wouldn't that technically make it a newer build? :p

Nope :)

Ever heard of Windows Update? ;)

I'm sure a build can just have an updated applied to it and I doubt they would make a whole new build just to apply a couple of updates (or even just the one 'MP3 issue' update).

Saying that, I wouldn't rule out the possibility of a new build number :)

I'm just speculating here. We'll have to wait and see what happens when it is officially announced :)

They did reserve a few build #'s between 7000 and 7004? Which starts the RC builds that they're working on. So we could very well see something like 7001 or 7002 maybe.

Only time will tell.

Some Microsoft employees got build 7004 to 'play' with over a week ago.

So. Looking forward to the legal download as soon as its available. Will more than likely want x64 version.

but the code from 7004 is older. They made new code branches like they also did in Vista. Vista RC1 5600 was newer then Build 570x because they created the 57xx code branch from latest 55xx Builds.
