Windows 7 Download
Windows 7 Build 7032 is floating around on various torrent sites.
The leaked Windows 7 build includes:
- New IE8 RC1
- 3 new themes
- easy LAN-setup through “Homegroups”
It also hides icons if you move something inside the explorer (instead of making them transparent).
If you are keen on seeing the new themes, here we go..
I’m not a native speaker, but wanted to grab the english language package so I can take screenshots from my desktop which I can post here.
Because there was such a high demand Microsoft removed the download limit for the Windows 7 beta. You will be able to download the beta for another two weeks (until January 24th by now).
The current requirements to install the beta are:
- 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor
- 1GB of system memory
- 16 GB of available disk space
- Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128 MB memory (to enable the Aero theme)
The requirements will probably change sooner or later but right now feel free to install the beta on an old PC. Although Microsoft offers localized editions (Arabic, German; Hindi, Japanese aside from English) there are many untranslated parts.
I have been able to try Windows 7 already. For me, as a Vista user, the GUI is very familiar, but it’s great to see the new features in action. You can now preview tabs on the taskbar, resize windows by dragging it to the top or left/right of the desktop or take screenshots ten times faster than before. The new paint is a really cool tool now, but I don’t want to spoil the fun for you, just try it!
The official Windows 7 site states that the beta is available for download again!
Go to the download page directly.
From now on you will need a Windows Live account in order to download the beta. If you have a Hotmail account you should already have a Windows Live ID.
At the moment I am not able to download it, the page you are getting redirected to after you signed-in is just loading for ages.
After doing some research I found out that there are currently two download links that still work. The download speed is very fast (1000 kb/s). However, my download ended after receiving 270MB, although the size is about 2.4 GB.
Here are the links, if you want to give it a try:
