Windows 7 Beta: Open to All Friday Jan. 9
An official beta of Windows 7 is here for MSDN subscribers and will be available to everyone tomorrow. I've been running the pre-beta from PDC and it is more solid than the initial release of Vista was. The beta should only be better. With rumors of a release as early as this summer, the beta has to be solid. Of course, it uses the kernel of Vista so this isn't a re-write, but rather more of a "Windows Vista SP3".
