    Hi, can anyone please tell me how to get info about Windows 7 ? In the past
    I used to get
    Beta copies of Vista, and would certainly like to share in that option
    again, with 7

    regards

    Windows 7 is still pre-beta. When the public beta is available I'm sure you
    will see plenty of news. If you want to try for the pre-beta trials, you
    can sign up on Windows Connect and you will be screened for qualifications.

    Actually Mike that build was also given to a select set of MVP's in certain
    technologies as well.

    Actually Windows 7 is production at the SP2 level. Look familiar. You must
    complete this survey in order to participate in the Windows 7 SP2 Beta. :)

  5. Rick,

    I was aware of the MVP distribution as well as the certain other dev partner
    distributions too, but I confined my comment to the publically accessible
    sources as discussion beyond that would be of no real relevance to a member
    of the general public interested in gaining pre-release access to the
    product

    Windows 7 is still currently pre-beta (presently between M3 and M4).
    Windows Vista SP2 is currently in testing, but the 2 test programs are not
    related.

    Hi Mike,

    I mentioned it because with that particular build those given the bits were
    told they were free to blog about and discuss it publicly. I'm not aware of
    any that have yet, but there is no restriction on it.

    What is your source, Rick. Everywhere I have seen anything it is NDA.

    It won't be there until it is available for a given profile. Generally you
    will receive an e-mail invitation first.
