    I have added this to a torrent file for people to download. M$ should have done this to begin with. You can get it from the links below:

    Here: http://www.bitlet.org/?torrent=http://www.mininova.org/get/2165552 | With this you do not need a torrent client installed, but you do need to have Java.

    Here: http://www.mininova.org/tor/2165552 | With this you will need a torrent client. I recommend uTorrent ;P

    You will notice that the username is xXavieRr - That is me. So if you have any questions, please ask ! :)

    And mods, since this is a free public beta; I thought it would be o.k? if it is not, please remove it...

    Neowin has a couple methods posted on how to get a key. You can also install it without a key and use it for 30 days.

    Now all I need to do is find a system to install it on

    I think that will change, epk. The response for this is killing everything. So I think they will want to give anyone they can a chance to try it out. Even if it is more than 2.5 million people.

    I've got the 32 bit version installed on three comps... but I grabbed 64bit keys too, in case I want to switch them over (Probably will shortly)

    After my whole stupid issue lol, I am installing 64bit 7 right now, seems the first part of it, actually getting to the install is very slow, but seems to be going fast now. I heard the install to 7 is much quicker then Vista, hope that is true.

    ****! I got a 64-bit key this evening, couple of hours later it's running fine! Wireless network, sound, everything! :) This is cool! :)

    EDIT: Even WoW runs perfectly!

    A torrent has been up on TPB for some time now. It has around 6,000 seeders, I don't think there was need for any more torrent's to be made :p
