Microsoft does a 180: Tech testers to get a copy of Windows 7 for free
Posted by Mary Jo Foley @ 10:34 am

After irritating more than a few of its technical beta testers by telling them they wouldn’t get a free copy of the final version of Windows 7 for their testing trouble, Microsoft has done a 180-degree turn.

Microsoft will be providing its technical beta testers with a free copy of Windows 7 Ultimate, company officials acknowledged on July 30 in a posting on the Windows team blog.

From that posting:

“To show our appreciation, members of the invitation-only Windows 7 Technical Beta Program will be eligible for a free, final copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. For more information on how to take advantage of this, refer to Paul (Donnelly)’s post in the .Beta_Program newsgroup for details.”

The free copies of Windows 7 Ultimate will go to technical beta testers only — not every individual who participated in the public Windows 7 Beta and Release Candidate testing programs.

NDA deleted, sorry

I'm not a wiener like so many others in the TechBeta NG (probably kids) & could live w/ the MS decision however it went.

Note: for the Vista beta we didn't receive our dl copies & keys until 8 days after it RTMed, w/ that info in hand I figured I'd just wait & see what happened.
