    I've noticed that several folks here have been eager to get official access to the Windows Vista beta builds. Well, it looks like they're expanding the tech beta pool, so here's your chance. I'm not sure how long it'll last, so act quickly if you want one.

    You need to leave your full name and email address in the comments here:

    I'd rep you Kunal, but everyone else seems to be doing it, and I like to be different ;)

    j/k - rep given :D

    EDIT: Guys - post back with your success.

    As mentioned in the post, it might take a couple of weeks to get your invitation, so let us know if/when you do get it. :)

    Most definitely :)

    Kinda surprised other people haven't jumped on this, unless they are using the link and not posting :s

    I did see some names that I recognized in the list of comments.
    So yes, there are more people who signed up but haven't posted here.

    Given the size of the beta pool after all these additional nominations are submitted...I seriously doubt it.
    They might have something for people with the highest number/quality of bug reports though.

    I'm thinking they may close commenting on that post when they won't accept anyone new, but I could be wrong.

    I think it might take a little longer. There were a huge number of signups, so it'll take a while before they go through all of them.
