If it's a go, then how come on Microsoft's own site it says the public beta testing for Vista is not avaliable yet?

I guess I should ellaborate on the previous post to ease any concern;

Vista BETA was available to people who initially signed up for BETA testing. This includes ANY non subscriber, to any type of microsoft group.

I myself, have recieved an invite... but declined it due to the fact my friend gave me his :D... how nice.

Anyways... Im not too sure if they will be offering anymore BETA invites since BETA 2 is out now and they havent released any more information.

I think 2 million people is more than enough feed back

I don't know about that.
People who do would do it anyway.
I don't know anyone who would want it. The beta's self destruct when the expiration date is reached.
Waste of time just to try a pirated version of an incomplete OS. :huh:

I agree 100% with HitSquad.

-Even if you do find a torrent of it, or grab it on a p2p program, you still need a key, you only have 14 days to try and break activation, there is bugs galore in it, from simple things like the side bar, to reading drives backwards...
