The public Beta of Windows 7 apparently went live today to the first 2.5 million people able to download it.

That is, if anyone is able to download the damn thing. A friend and I have been trying for the better part of the whole day and neither one of us can get anywhere near an actual download link. The server just blows up every time or we get run in circles.

I hope someone is able to download this damn thing somewhere... but I'd be curious to know how. It sure seems impossible from my end.

It is as frustrating as (if not more so) trying to buy a Bag of Crap during a Woot! Off. That shit is infuriating. At least it's over quickly though - you just realize you failed and move on with your life.

On the other hand, this Beta continues to disappoint throughout the day. It's like a sick MS game. And I'm losing.
