[RANT] Windows 7 Beta Anger

RRRRRRRRGHHHH!

Cannot...get...beta...servers...overloaded. The ISOs are "available" but you need a key (from MS) and their servers are getting owned right now.

Was to be expected. Same thing happened with Steam and Half Life 2. Not enough servers to supply the demand of release day. One would think others would have learned their lessons.

I got both 64 bit & 32 bit. Dumb question but for a beta install do I need some type of product key?

Thanks skierkid450. I totally missed the post just above mine. Had tunnel vision from waiting and waiting for my downloads to complete and just couldn’t wait to try out the new toy!
