Unlimited Downloads of Windows 7 Beta

Posted on: January 13, 2009


Microsoft Corp. has reset the number of downloads to its Windows 7 Beta from 2.5 million to unlimited to accommodate more PC users who want to try the new operating system.

The software giant made the move Saturday in response to an overwhelming demand for the trial version of Windows 7 that overwhelmed its servers. The company’s website crashed on Friday when it rolled out Widows 7 Beta after it was swamped by millions of visitors seeking to download the program.

"We didn’t quite anticipate the demand that we saw," Laurence Painell, product manager at Microsoft, told BBC News. Painell said they were only expecting IT and corporate people to download it.

The new operating system apparently is more attractive than its predecessor, the Windows Vista, as the new version requires lesser PC resources.

The unlimited download of Windows 7 Beta will last for two weeks, according to Microsoft.

I am actually excited about this. This is one of the only OS that is compatible with my new 4G wireless internet connection here in Portland. We are evolving quickly and I am happy to be a part of it.

Sorry for the question Erin, but i need a answer, why you pay for a 4G Wireless Internet if you don’t have a OS compatible…until Windows 7 came out?
