Windows 7 Beta Downloads Extended Through February 10

There’s a new post on The Windows Blog indicating that general availability of the Windows 7 Beta download will end on February 10th.  Here’s the calendar:

The shutdown of general availability for the Windows 7 Beta will occur in 3 phases over the course of the next few weeks:

  • Starting January 27th, the Windows 7 page will be updated with a warning that time is running out on downloading the Windows 7 Beta and that we will be limiting downloads shortly. People will be encouraged to register and start the download of the Windows 7 Beta sooner rather than later.
  • February 10th, new downloads of the Windows 7 Beta will no longer be available. People who have already started their Windows 7 Beta download and have not yet finished will still be able to finish their download and are encouraged to do so.
  • February 12th, people will no longer be able to complete their download of the Windows 7 Beta. Anyone who hasn’t finished downloading the Windows 7 Beta will be unable to do so.

If you’ve been holding off downloading the Beta, at least now you’ve got a timeframe to work with.

If you want it, go start downloading it by February 10!
