Yea I think the actual beta time bomb is about 6 months.

Will I need to pay money for a subscription to access the beta or will it be a public beta that anyone can access and provide feedback/bug reports on?

It would a bummer if I needed money to access the beta as I don't have any money at the time.

legally you are alloud to re-arm windows beta upto 120 days max, search on google and Microsoft will give you the DOS command to reset the timelimit or run command.

The OS will only allow 3 then lockup :)

If you do about Windows, it will tell you how many re-arms you have left.

But it's going publically so you wont have to do this.

Well that is great news. From what I've been hearing and reading of Windows 7, I think I'm going like it..... a lot, even more so than Vista. :D

However I am unable to register on the connect site at the time, I'm getting errors galore and it displays the IIS error page saying I'm not authorized to access that page, if I refresh the page then I can load it fine but am still unable to register for connect.

LOL man connect.microsoft.com is perfectly fine, it's not even released on there and it's night time in the US they won't release it at night.

I thought the official beta will come with some type of time limited key, so you won't need to re-arm the install? :s

Something tells me there won't be a release until after midnight, possibly eastern standard time, that is if the public beta is actually scheduled for the 7th..

Had to use IE7...

However I only have one thing on my dashboard, the Visual Studio Registration benefits where you have multiple things, where can I find beta programs to join and participate in?

The public beta would probably be distributed from the windows 7 site. It wouldn't use Connect.
