This is a real offer, Microsoft is letting MSDN, TechBeta and TechNet customers download beta versions of Windows 7. They say it’s less resource intensive than Vista, so maybe I’ll try it on my wife’s computer when we replace it. Though I’m not sure she’d let me survive the experience if it made a new computer that’s less stable then the one she has now. My other option is to create a virtual machine on my main system. If my experience with Vista is any way to measure it though, Windows 7 will painfully slow and unusable. This makes me glad I subscribed to TechNet.
