Windows 7 is a next operating system of Microsoft and it is expected to release next year. Windows 7 has mind-blowing features that can help users to make their work experience more delightful. To get our hands on these features, we don’t have to wait too long. Microsoft is planning to launch beta versions of Windows 7 in coming months.
According to some sources, Windows 7 Beta 1 is going to be released in the next month, but there is no conformation from Microsoft people. Two days back Microsoft selected a bunch of beta testers and sent an email related to participation in Windows 7 Beta 1. It clearly indicates that Microsoft people making their moves fast to release Beta1.
People who got the invitation from Microsoft are being named as “tech beta testers”. Take a look at the note that Microsoft sent to the invitees:
“While (the Windows 7) beta will not be available until early 2009 we, know you are excited to get started so we have opened the microsoft.beta.win7.lobby (on the Microsoft Connect site) so you may begin renewing acquaintances with previous participants as well as meeting new testing peers. After accepting the invitation, you will be able to sign into Microsoft Connect and click on the ‘Windows 7 Beta Program’ link for more information on accessing the newsgroups.
“As well, to better understand our audience and how we are asking you to complete the following three surveys to tell us about yourself. Each survey has 20-40 questions and each should take you approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. You don’t have to take them all at once nor do you have to do it right now. We ask though that at some point you find time to complete them. As a thank-you for completing these prior to the end of the calendar year (Prior to January 1st, 2009) each participant who completes all three surveys (or indicates ‘already taken’) will be put into a drawing and five winners selected to receive some Windows 7 logo’ed toys!”
