Microsoft Windows 7 beta freebie(?)

Interesting idea from MS. You can download a functioning beta for windows 7 - apparently valid until 1st Aug 2009. They say "it can be glitchy - so dont use it on an everyday computer." Not sure what the difference is between that and the licensed versions they release of all the other windows......:)

The link takes you to the US site - not sure if you need to change the region over to Oz but dont think it makes too much difference.
Expiry date:2009/03/01

    I downloaded both the 32bit and 64bit versions over the weekend and installed the 32bit one on Monday. It seems alright, although I don't like Vista and this has the same Vista interface :(

    Is it largely identical to vista in functionality hellwolf? I had a chuckle the other day when I read that the 2IC at Microsoft let slip the other day to a journalist that "Windows 7 was everything that Vista was supposed to be."

    I've only had a quick play with the OS since installing it, but from what I saw it is very identical.
