Windows 7 is a hot topic these days especially after we had various windows 7 beta leaks on torrents. The official Windows 7 Beta version was to be released on January 8th to MSDN and Technet subscribers whereas it was planned for public release on January 9th. Only 2.5 million copies were to be distributed but as it turned out, microsoft servers could not handle the large and enthusiastic amount of users trying to get their copy of Windows 7 Beta. The downloads for Windows 7 beta have been taken down. Microsoft is now looking to add “additional infrastructure support” to support the huge amount of downloaders. The Windows 7 beta download page states the following message:
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.
