0 Comments »

The Beta version of Windows 7 will be available for public download and try out on January 9th, 2009, as announced by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at CES yesterday. This download only available for a “limited time” and it will cap the download after 2.5 millions downloads. The download will expires on August 1st, 2009.

The Beta download will be available in both 32 and 64 bit and only for English, Japanese, German, Hindi and Arabic edition, in form of .iso file (3,230.10 MB for 64-bit and 2,497.48 MB for 32-bit). So users must have DVD writer to burn disk image to a blank disc.

At the same time, Microsoft’s also provided a list of the minimum system specification for people who want to run the beta version on their computer. The beta version only requires a PC or notebook with as low as 1GHz processor clock speed, 1GB of memory, 16GB of hard disk space and 128MB of graphic memory to support for DX9 graphics and aero interface.

However, Microsoft doesn’t specify the exact release date for final version, other than say that official target for the completed version of Windows 7 is early next year.

The beta download will be available at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/default.aspx
