Yeeha, got one!

Apparently this key works with any language? I tried with English and German and I got the same key. I always thought product keys were language dependent? I also tried with Japanese but it doesn't work there.

I just want to confirm it gives EVERYONE the same key.

Here is the first half of the key:

CQ22W-MD73V-VR

If someone else who also got this method to work could post the second half of the key.

Got mine, completely different to the one posted up there ^^
I tried the whole, check4change thing with firefox, and kept getting redirected.
So, i gave up.
Tried again, one last time for a laugh, and what do you know? It worked

Count?

10 keys there, that 11th one that isn't complete might just be a mistake by the person who sent me the list, since he didn't seem to know what the full one of that was either...

That IS all they're giving out for the Public beta... Technet/MSDN is probably different, though I don't know for sure.

I notice that too. I keep refreshing the page and got the same keys.
This is what I got (exactly the same):

x64
7XRCQ-RPY28-YY9P8-R6HD8-84GH3
JYDV8-H8VXG-74RPT-6BJPB-X42V4
482XP-6J9WR-4JXT3-VBPP6-FQF4M
D9RHV-JG8XC-C77H2-3YF6D-RYRJ9
RFFTV-J6K7W-MHBQJ-XYMMJ-Q8DCH

x86
4HJRK-X6Q28-HWRFY-WDYHJ-K8HDH
GG4MQ-MGK72-HVXFW-KHCRF-KW6KY
QXV7B-K78W2-QGPR6-9FWH9-KGMM7
6JKV2-QPB8H-RQ893-FW7TM-PBJ73
TQ32R-WFBDM-GFHD2-QGVMH-3P9GC

Note that since the keys are not unique, I am not violating the rules.
