In CES Steve Ballmer confirmed that Windows 7 Public Beta will be released on Friday January 9. According to Neowin it's also fully confirmed that this release will be the same as the leaked Build 7000 that many OSNN members here have downloaded.

Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO, announced at CES that Windows 7 will see its public debut on Friday 9th January. Microsoft is currently readying the beta for MSDN and TechNet subscribers and this will be available during Thursday 8th January (or sooner).

It's fully confirmed that the beta 1 build will be 7000 that leaked shortly after Christmas. Our members have been discussing the various leaks and Windows 7 availability all day in one of our more popular forum threads. According to sources close to Microsoft, the company is significantly further on from build 7000 and it's understood that the development has branched from 7003 onwards ready for the RC/RTM stages. Microsoft is also providing a QFE patch for the MP3 corruption issues that have plagued build 7000, this should be online shortly as KB961367 for those with official access.
I'm glad that Microsoft isn't only making this public beta available to MSDN subscribers! :)

Perhaps it would be better to actually quote the article and get the name correct:
