Windows 7 beta – free to everyone (until Jan 24)

After copping a fair amount of flack for limiting downloads to its Vista-apologist OS beta, Microsoft has lifted the Windows 7  download cap from 2.5 million to ‘as many of you can grab it as humanly possible’ – at least up until the January 24.

Naturally, due to the enormous strain on the servers from all the whingy masses now getting their way, the offical link to the beta has been taken down. However the ever diligent Lifehacker crowd has managed to search out direct links to the ISO for both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions. You’re on your own when it comes to scoring a product key though.
