Explain. - Kevin
Wait never mind. They should just releae it tomrrow to everyone. What's the point in waiting? - Kevin
how does this work? - Orion
No early access. No information about timing. No interim builds. They're treated like boobs. Granted, they find about 5 percent of bugs, so I guess it makes sense. - Paul Thurrott
Well, MS could benefit from bug finding from the general public too. - Kevin
Anyone get Windows 7 running yet? - Orion
Haha, that would suck to get accepted into the beta and get it when the public beta comes out... - Jonathan
