…so to speak.
I’ve heard it many times…
“I want the Vista beta! How do I get the beta?”
This page spells it all out. It’s available currently “in English to select Beta 1 testers through the technical beta program, as well as to MSDN and TechNet subscribers.”
If you’re an MSDN subscriber of the proper “level”, you can download it today.
If you’re a TechNet subscriber at the plus level, you’ll be receiving it on disc in your September disc shipment.
