Windows 7: Windows 7 Beta 1 January 13, 2009?

Vista X32. Windows 7 32bit
 
 
Build 6956

Some one might be interested, although with the Beta so close, why bother?


In related news, Microsoft announced Tuesday that it will distribute full beta copies of Windows 7 at its Microsoft Developer Conferences running from December 9 to February 19.

The impossible has been done again and pirates all over the world are busy trying to obtain the more updated build of Windows 7- build 6956. Just a day after WinHEC China began, an attendee from the conference managed to slip a Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) image of Windows 7 Build 6956 onto a portable device and upload it via torrent to the world. You’d think that Microsoft would have some sort of security enforced to keep this from happening after how hard they’ve been trying to prevent any leaks. The uploader from the PCBeta forum uses the alias Edward_Han, and is seen by the Chinese Windows community as a hero. The community has been referring to him as Edward_Han the hero, and even Master Edward_Han. The entire VHD image was actually supposed to be uploaded yesterday, but Ed’s computer shut off mysteriously, so the pirating had to be delayed for a day. As of now, there’s heated discussion on how to properly turn the VHD image into a fully functional install of Windows 7 Build 6959. A few have succeeded, but most people are having trouble and are awaiting for the Chinese hackers and community to get an ISO out. Word is starting to spread quickly in the English community in forums including our own, and many others. So far, from what we can tell, the following features are included in the build:

* Windows Peeking or Aero Peeking
* Desktop Slideshows
* Modified Start Menu and Taskbar (No arrows beside application icons)

It needs to be at OEM's by August maybe early September, to stand any chance of a holidays 09 release.

...and I thought the final was to be released in early 2010? ohh well I'm not complaining.
This could very well be the best OS that Microsoft will release to the public.
I just hope this will be around for many more yrs to come.

yes exactly
i say to my physical friends (no offense to you guys all of you are...lol)
i tell them vista was way ahead of its time (me talking 3 yrs ahead)
since they tell me its super slow...
i tell them imagine if they realsed it now knowing that the hardware to use it is there...
they stop hearing me before that (they just dont care...lol)
by any chance w7 will be a hit since the hardware capability is there...
even my comp can take it and it is only 1gb of ram (6956 well i do love the capability to use aero in intergrated) and with 3gb im able to run a vm at optimal speed...
i see that projection in 09
"w7 will be a hit"
