    Once Microsoft's servers are able to handle the demand, the official test version (or beta) should be available for download later this weekend.

    Holy Sh**. I just got another key with my other live account. 3 pages out of 8 got displayed.

    Their servers seem to be working now maybe because US and UK is sleeping and load is lower if not low.

    Cheers !

    So is it better to open multiple pages and reload them all, or open multiple tabs? Or is it better to just keep refreshing one page?

    Multiple tabs worked for me on IE and Firefox. Just right click on one tab and select "Refresh All" / "Reload All" and then wait for ALL the pages to stop loading before you try again.

    The pages that get displayed (with key) take longer to load than the pages which show the error message.

    I keep getting:

    Thanks for your interest in the Windows 7 Beta. The volume has been phenomenal -- we’re in the process of adding more servers to handle the demand. We’re sorry for the delay and we’ll re-post the Beta as soon as we can ensure a quality download experience.
