Windows 7 Beta Release Times

According to this site:

Partners with a MSDN or TechNet subscription can download Windows 7 Beta now. All other partners can download Windows 7 Beta starting January 9, 2009 at 12:00 P.M. Pacific Time.

So for those of us in Eastern Time it is 3:00 PM, or basically 20:00 UTC.

    I went to register at 7:30 this morning and saw the same thing. Either I’m going to stay late at school to register, or rush home quickly and register once I get through the door. Something tells me that those 2.5 million spots are going to go quickly.

    Yeah. Or you can download it on BitTorrent, of course. Like any of US are going to do THAT. Right?

    And since my DVD-RW drive died, I’m gonna copy the disc over to a hard drive and use my FLP disc as a LiveCD. I did this before to take Vista for a spin, but since the drive I used then was crap, it didn’t work. Hopefully this time it’ll work.

    Don’t try what I did, unless you have a better hard drive, and even then: don’t try it. I might try it later with a “7 installation” partition and a “7 system partition”, but I’m inching closer to the 250gb cap, which I don’t like.
