Windows Even though the Windows 7 beta had been available on piracy networks for a while now, it still hadn't been officially released. During his pre-show keynote at CES, Steve Ballmer officially launched the Windows 7 beta onto the world via TechNet, MSDN, and Connect. It will become available to the general public this Friday.

It's all BS

I've installed the beta too and compared the performance in the game ETQW (this game is highly dependant of processor power). On the same machine (E8400, gigabyte P45-UD3, 2gb DDR2) windows 7 is indeed SLOWER than xp (less FPS). So, all this hype about great performance from win7 is BS. Last but not least, it doesn't boot any faster either.
