Windows 7 Beta 1 b7000
 
 

From the "Welcome to Windows 7" website, in the opening paragraph:
Quote:
Want to try the Beta? Come back the afternoon of January 9. And remember—this is just a preview. There's more to come. Want to try the Beta? Subscribe to the team RSS feed to be alerted as soon as the Beta becomes publicly available.
I'm guessing by afternoon, they mean Pacific time.

3AM in FL is 12 PM (Midnight Th/Fr) PST...
Does this mean you have proof that the release is 12 Midnight not the widely accepted 12 Noon Friday (3PM for EST -Florida)

If so, then
That puts it at a handy 8AM for the UK

Where did Microsoft state that? I don't think that is true.

And there's the rub of it! I haven't seen concrete proof that it's either!

There's the "get it Friday" which would insinuate 12 midnight and likely be PST, which would put it at 3AM EST;
then there's the "come back Friday afternoon to DL your copy" which would instead infer 12 Noon (and again would more than likely be PST)
but, unless they've released a definite confirmed ETA in the last hour or two that I've missed (or you have some "source" wink, wink, nudge, nudge) it's all just speculation isn't it!
Any way -we'll know soon enough (not soon enough! )
Cheers ALL
