You have to contact connect, it's a permissions error which only they can fix, i had the same problems.

Same here. It's fluffing up on and off. What are those Microsoft folks up too?

I am able to go to my Dashboard, but if I go to 'Windows Beta Programs' which I used to access Vista Beta, it is throwing error. Not sure whether that would be the place Win 7 beta would turn up or they are removing that entirely, lol.

The Beta releasing and the traffic of the websites, will not bring the websites down, there servers are massive. Super computers.

:laugh: maybe. In the past, just before new beta builds came up, connect would have a fit. Just like now.

I mean I can sympathize for the hype which is one of the reasons I'm not getting too involved here. But Windows 7 is fantastic, yes it's not that big on consumer features but that's what 3rd party software is for. Microsoft is clearly doing the right thing by not making a "tugjob OS", they're just keeping it shaved and lubed up :laugh:

MS, Plz to gief Win 7, kthxbai.

Connect probably taking a hammering right now for no reason, just because it is January 7 in some places, still is the 6th in the US :)

technically you can "try it" in Beta and use the 35 day evaluation time bomb. If the EULA states otherwise then forget my previous statement.

What you are asking is not in clearer enough terms, rephrase please and then we can answer.

It obviously will be available all the time till their next Public release which will be RC and that will also be available to all mum's, Milf's and grandmothers :p lol

There is no limit, you can waste your bandwidth if you like :D

Well, the 30 day 'evaluation' time bomb is to enter the serial, not a trial-mode and I'm pretty sure that goes for beta software as well?

And by legit I mean a proper key, downloading through a Microsoft source etc.
