Windows 7 beta arrives on Connect, MSDN, and TechNet

  1. Windows 7 beta is now available on Microsoft Connect, MSDN, and on TechNet. At the same time, Microsoft has given Windows Server 2008 R2 beta to its MSDN and TechNet subscribers as well. I'm not currently in the Windows Server 2008 R2 beta program on Microsoft Connect, but if you are, post in the comments below if the beta is available for download there as well.

    As with any Microsoft client operating system release, piracy got the upper hand: the 32-bit version of Windows 7 beta (build 7000) arrived almost two weeks ago, and the 64-bit version arrived a couple of hours before the keynote. There is a flip side, however. Users discovered a serious MP3 corruption problem in the leaked build, and Microsoft promised it was working on a patch. That patch (KB96137) is available with the beta downloads on Microsoft Connect, MSDN, and TechNet.
