    As an MS support professional of many years, I think that MS has finally "jumped the shark".

    Logged onto my MSDN subscription this morning and downloaded Vista Beta 2.

    It wants a product key to install a Beta ? – OK, I’ll bite.

    Log back on to MSDN to download product key – errors out.

    Speak to online MSDN support concierge – product key servers have failed under the "strain".

    Since I pay several hundred pounds for an MSDN subscription, this is just utter nonsense.

    I can only presume they spent my MSDN subscription money re-instating the "free towels" for all MS employees.

    Given this and the current state of MS products / support in the last few years, I am seriously considering going with Open Source software.

    Incidentally, you’ve needed to have a product key to install betas since at least Windows ME.  This is nothing new.

    Have you considered waiting a bit and then trying again for the "strain" to die down on the key servers?  Given the number of people who were no doubt trying to download Vista and get product keys at the same time, it’s not hard to imagine that there could be traffic issues.
