" And remember—this is just a preview. There's more to come."

I wonder what they mean by that, cause i think they said this build is feature complete, so what else if anything could they be adding later?

Could you possible post the url's you are currently using to get the iso?

Cheers from a very frustrated person,
See the TIP box on the first page for the new download links.

Product keys for this release will be available next week. A product key is not required to install and use the release."

Message right from Microsoft.
Well I think this was worth mentioning before beta 1 was to be released, I think M$ is dropping the ball on this folks.

yah stand by for yet another series of epic crashes.
today reminded me all to much of the final showdown on the movie "Hackers" and the epic denial of service they pulled to crash the big bad mega server.

No doubt MS dropped the ball on this one, if they had mentioned this before today, no one would be frantically refreshing and holding back the servers trying to get the 2.5 million keys.

People would download it with ease, the only reason everyone is downloading it RIGHT NOW is because they thought that the keys will be released alongside it.

EDIT: and I WOULD NOT have spent my day on the internet trying to get a stupid key.
