I would like to announce that the first Beta of Windows 7 is out and available for download.

What you'll need :

  • A blank DVD

  • A PC with a DVD burner

  • A test PC for the Windows 7 Beta that meets these minimum hardware recommendations (specific to the Beta and subject to change in the final version of Windows 7). Please do not use a PC you rely on for your work or daily use:

    • 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor

    • 1 GB of system memory

    • 16 GB of available disk space

    • Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128 MB memory (in order to enable Aero theme)

    • DVD-R/W Drive

    • Internet access (to download the Beta and get updates)

What is New?

Important note:

The Windows 7 Beta will stop working after the finance disaster is over on August 1, 2009. To continue using your PC, please be prepared to reinstall a prior version of Windows or a subsequent release of Windows 7 before the expiration date. We recommend doing a custom (clean) installation.
