Microsoft Extends Windows 7 Beta Availability Until January 24th

Microsoftie Brandon LeBlanc admits that the Windows 7 beta release scramble "was not ideal" and says the company will extend its availability beyond the 2.5M cap until January 24th.

We have clearly heard that many of you want to check out the Windows 7 Beta and, as a result, we have decided remove the initial 2.5 million limit on the public beta for the next two weeks (thru January 24th). During that time you will have access to the beta even if the download number exceeds the 2.5 million unit limit.

Though their initial underestimation of demand did smack of cluelessness, it's nice to see Microsoft making amends for a rocky couple of days. As of now you can get the download and the free product key to unlock it by visiting the Windows 7 Beta site straight on (no secret direct download links required). Due to a lot of traffic you might get the message: 'We are Sorry. The link was not found.' In this case use the below given direct links: (32bit) (64bit)
