    It works for me but the server connection gets cut off after a while and it does not allow resuming.

    Well, I've given up for now. You could always try tomorrow. Hopefully they have the link up by then though

    Vista RC keys works for the Windows 7 beta, they are worthless anyway for retail ;)

    server 2008 beta keys work for retail server 2008 ;)

    also ive found that 3870x2 can not run 3dmark06 as of yet resulting in bsod every time. probably a ati driver issue for the moment. minimizing, closing windows has a 1ns delay that it should not as well (in windows 7)

    It should as there are no reasons to change it since its only beta, I've changed my board twice since I first installed the 6800 build, I used the freephone UK 0800 MS number to reactivate it twice now and it still works.

    Wow, I dl'ed Win7 and installed it on a single core 939 Athlon(2.2Ghz) with 1gig ram and 10GB hard drive and I'm very impressed with how quick it runs. It does get bogged down during multiple programs but what single core doesn't.
    It self installed drivers for everything but the audio. Even picked up on the 8600GTS. I haven't had much time to play with the OS but It's alot faster than Vista on my main rig! I likey!
