The other one which I use is the Everest sidebar. Didn't have it up yet since I just installed and it was 5:00AM when I took the screen shot.

Many thanks for that.

I've contacted the folks in the IT department where I used to work and among us, a total of 9 people, we have found the same 5 product keys used over and over again for Win.7.x86 and for Win.7.x64 (5 each).

That's 9 different people, each of whom got at least 2 keys for each version of Win.7 beta, who appear to have been given product keys at different times and with different levels of connection to MS's various programs -- all from the same pool of 5 for each version -- and we didn't share.

Are there only 5 product keys for each?

Nope, I got it on the 24th!

But as everyone knows now, the hash checksums match up with the "Official" MS RC release so it's exactly the same.

Dont suppose its something silly like you company are signed up to a Volume license / Select Agreement so their keys are tied to that?

No, because I'm no longer covered in that agreement and got mine independently. Two friends near where I live have no connection at all with any of my four former co-workers (they're in a totally different city 250 miles away), and two more are affiliated with a major university.

Plus, I've just logged into my MS live account in an attempt to get more (I got 2 each, originally). What I found: the SAME 5 product codes. This is very strange.

=> login => get code => hit 'refresh' for next code => repeat, ad nauseum => 5 codes.
