The Windows guys listened and my pal Brandon wrote a post on their team blog yesterday saying Here’s where we stand. Given the unprecedented demand for Windows 7 has led the team to remove the previous limit of 2.5 million downloads they had set. They’ve now extended the download to two weeks (until Jan 24th) so if you still haven’t managed to get it and want to, that should leave plenty of time. I’m “upgrading” every machine in the house and encouraging all of my friends to
do the same upgrade a PC as most of them have more than one.
My advice: if you can, you should. (upgrade ONE machine that is…not suggesting you u/g all of them)
Go grab it from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/beta-download.aspx
NB: The file you will download is an ISO. If you’re not familiar with burning an ISO, I’d highly recommend Adrian Kingsley-Hughes' excellent post on this.
