I think all the geeks who want to try it will have no problem getting in.

Thanks!!

Edit:
Will the Dll be the current B1 we have? The torrented one?
Because that way I'd only get a serial no, and done!

So how do you get a serial, seeing as I'm in no position to download the beta again, thanks to my fantastic ISP

That's also the same and only reason that I'm waiting for the beta program to start, which won't be open till another 2 hours more.
Someday, I hope to contribute something to this site again. But I'm no computer programmer.

I suppose you'll have to enter some data, and when you finish you'll get a "here's your download, the serial is xxx-xxx-xx..." blah blah blah.
so I'll just write it down and there we go!

uNfortunately, They won't.

I can't access it now, but it specified clearly ("no dvds will be sent").
edit: finally appeared:
The Windows 7 Beta is going to be available download-only (we’re not sending out physical media) and available for a limited time to the first 2.5 million people who download the beta.
Because the Windows 7 Beta will be offered download-only, it will be provided to you as an ISO image (an .iso file) that you download.
So...

Unfortunately we won't

sure it is.
It's soo different to have your nice sealed, etc etc Beta Disk, than having a Sony DVD you burnt yourself.
The disk is part of the magic of it, but unfortunately we won't get it.
