Public betas of Windows 7 client and server could hit this week

It’s not much of a secret at this point, but CEO Steve Ballmer is expected to announce official availability of the closed Windows 7 Beta 1 release during his Consumer Electronics Show keynote address on January 7. The official (non-Torrented) Beta 1 bits should be available to pre-approved Windows 7 Beta 1 testers later Wednesday night or early on January 8.



Update
: Nope. It’s going to be sooner, not later. The latest word: The public beta of Win 7 client is due to hit Friday, January 9, according to a source familiar with Microsoft’s plans. The public beta of Win 7 Server is due to hit a day earlier, January 8, the source added.

I will most certainly be keeping an eye out on this over the next few days.

Do you think there will be some kind of link made available to either download an ISO, or maybe order an original DVD (which I'd prefer because to download a 2GB+ file in South Africa will take AGES, and my internet cap isn't large enough)

Windows 7 Build 7000
 
 

So, is there anything I need to sign-up for in order to get the public beta or is it truly just anyone and everyone?

I already have the x86 and it seemed to run fine on a test laptop. I'm downloading the x64 now. Just 30min left and I'm formating.
