Mark this one in your favourites/bookmarks:
Looks like the big guns are getting ready. The link is not working ..yet.
Later. never mind. It's down again. Microsoft seemed to have boobed and have deleted the 7 download link!

Vista X32. Windows 7 32bit
Beta Download Link Removed.

Update on the Article below : -
According to Neufuse in the comments this was a publishing error on the CMS from Microsoft. Microsoft have now removed the link. Expect access to the beta after Steve Ballmer's keynote on Wednesday 7th January 2009, unless it leaks beforehand of course.

"Microsoft have updated their Windows 7 site with a download link for the Windows 7 beta.

It would appear from the posting that Microsoft is currently readying site updates and download servers for the imminent release of the Windows 7 beta. Yesterday, German site Winfuture claimed that the beta would be released today and this could confirm the sites claims.

The download link is currently inaccessible. It's entirely possible that once the page is live it will simply be a sign up page to register your interest. Microsoft will not comment on the exact date and a Microsoft official confirmed the beta is still targetted for early 2009"

Updated: Windows 7 beta download imminent? No -

According to MSDN, it looks like it will actually be possible to snag the beta on January 9th... But that is odd as it is a Friday. So perhaps it is a typo, but if not, I will be providing it then :)

Someone will create a torrent file before long & we will all have it. Rumor is that the Vista beta keys will work in this build as well, I hope this is true.

The January 9th date is the date you can download it on there according to Microsoft right now. No idea about invites, I know nothing about that.

Microsoft Vine invites going out
I haven't gotten mine yet, but managed to find an invite code. A lot of people were calling it Microsoft Twitter, but from what I have experienced so far, it's much more than that. You can update your status, but you can also have very localized (physical addressed based) news. Since I don't know...
