Get in quick – only the first 2.5 million downloads will get it.

On January 9th, the Windows 7 Beta will be available for Windows enthusiasts to download via the Windows 7 page on Windows.com. The Windows 7 Beta is going to be available download-only (we’re not sending out physical media) and available for a limited time to the first 2.5 million people who download the beta.

I’ve been using Windows 7 pre-beta for a few months. It’s pretty solid.
