Wee writes: Microsoft has announced that the public beta for Windows 7 is now live. The first 2.5 million people to sign in and download the iso will be able to try out the new OS until it expires on August 1, 2009. It's apparently speedier than XP and Vista and incorporates some new UI design elements. I'm looking forward to trying it out on spare machine, seeing what drivers/apps/games work, etc.
