Microsoft was forced last week to halt the download availability of Windows 7 beta code after a rush of Internet traffic crippled its servers.

Over the weekend Microsoft resumed download availability of Windows 7 beta code. Originally Microsoft was going to limit the number of total downloads of its beta code to 2.5 million. But because of the SNAFU Winodows communications manager Brandon LeBlanc said the company would allow unlimited downloads of the OS for the next two weeks.



Below we've compiled all the information you need to understand what's different with the Windows 7 beta and decide whether it's the right option for you.

• Windows 7 beta: Official Microsoft page

Microsoft's complete collection of Windows 7 news, videos, Q&As, and official download information.

• Windows 7 beta TechNet download page

The official download site for Windows 7 via Microsoft's TechNet Evaluation Center.
