Windows 7 Beta download will be available before January 5th

committed to database on December 21, 2008 at 3:18 am Eastern Standard Time


Ed Bott, a good friend of mine, recently predicted that Windows 7 Beta bits are going to be publicly unveiled on January 13, during CES. Some late night scrounging around revealed that Windows 7 could be available sooner — via download links slipped into the next Microsoft Action Pack Subscription quarterly update kit, which starts shipping January 5, 2009. Word internally is that the beta build was already baked a while ago, we just have to be patient.
Update (Dec 23): Microsoft has removed all mention of Windows 7 Beta.

Yeah, I got purely lucky in terms of the 'door' prize - only 5 per section were chosen out of at *minimum* 50 participants per section. Of course, it required you to complete the surveys, so that could have been as low as 25 - but still I lucked out well.

I was the next to last winner chosen, and it was a choice between those classes and a combo cam/mouse package. It wasn't hard to see where the value lay

Well, actually, that is a thing of interest too - I am a double major (Comp Sci and Math) and the last set of the classes featured a class on F# - a new programming language that is in development by M$ that is 100% interoperable with .NET and all the other VS languages, that is written *specifically* for Mathematics calculations and computations. Naturally, that is where I *planned* on ending the day from the moment I saw the agenda.

BTW - F# friggin rocks. It should be getting barely prevalent enough for me to do my complete Masters thesis on it for use in the Financial world, and seeing as I want to get into Financial Engineering, this could not have come at a better time....
