Windows 7: 2.5 Million Only for Public Beta - starting new IT job, anyone still waiting?

2.5 Million Only for Public Beta - starting new IT job, anyone still waiting?

I got up early, 5:00AM pacific, and it still wasn't ready.
One site had the windows 7 page as the place to be.

Now I found it a tech site but keep getting server busy. What are my chances? Are they still going to release on the windows 7 website? Am hoping that the article said FRI Afternoon, which just happened and it not being on the windows 7 site = good chance.

Anyone else still waiting?

Thanks,

Thanks - - okay, well then, this website I am talking about it techsite.windows.com - if you are registered, you can download direct from website - $249 for membership, they also provide a non member link but of course, site says, SERVER BUSY, try again later - so somehow, it's released NOW but in a very limited bandwidth.

Appreciate the feedback.

Maybe, but it wasn't like that a few minutes ago.

I guess the Micro 7 website will still be the place to go...

2.5 million, if it hasn't started yet, we should still have a chance.

I don't think so. That was just one website - the major 2.5 million release is supposed to be from windows and that hasn't happened yet.
