Windows 7 BETA now out!

Windows 7 BETA is now avaliable to download from microsoft at 2.4GB .. im installing it tomorrow, basically in its final release (around feb 2010) its going to be a 'slimmed' down vista using less ram and will be a lot faster, as well as more customisation and other little 'behind the scene' bits

i just hope i can find drivers for my wireless internet, cod4 and my 8600gt

windows 7 uses the same driver code as vista .. so just download vista drivers (I have and it works fine)
