    Welcome to the Forums blak.

    I agree some people just got greedy when in reality one key was all that was needed.
    Take it easy. There are almost an infinite number of keys to be made available.
    When someone has paid $350 for a Technet subscription, I don't have the word "greedy" popping up in front of me!

    Um, the people posting here with tons of keys were getting them with lots of LIVE ID's not a paid technet subscription.

    But if any of you were around last night, you would notice that at my suggestion, those of us that were able to get a few extra keys started providing them to those that were unable to understand the directions or simply could not get through for hours.

    This forum is above and beyond something like "greed".

    Bravo to all those involved in the great key exchange of 2009 on sevenforums!

    Hi DiamondNRG. You seem to have a problem with me. For that I am sorry. Battlling on two threads now. lol.
    I suggest you just get over it.
    Perhaps it would not occur to you that I took ten keys as I had something useful( and maybe generous) to do with them. Whatever that was, it would be a private matter, and not the immediate concern of members here.

    I was trying to get a key using Firefox and my live ID, I couldn't get the download button to work. Each time I refreshed the page it gave me a new Key? Are these keys valid? I didn't save them as I already had one, just wanted a spare.

    Yeah the keys are valid, you will need to use IE for the download button to work

    I downloaded both x86 and x64 yesterday. Microsoft Connect sent me a key and link for the 32bit Beta today. I thought maybe an extra key in case somebody else misses out? And a key for x64. I also thought that the key wouldn't be valid without the download. Seems they'll run out before 2 million downloads? But how many keys do you really need? I can only use one at a time!

    That makes more sense to me then. It must be based on the downloads.

    Just 10 >? For all of us? Hmmmmm.

    Wonder why they are being so wasteful - MSFT, must be the reason why when you click continue and get KEY #1, that after click download, you get another key.

    Strange.
