Here at CES earlier this week, Microsoft announced the release of the public beta of Windows 7. You can download it today and have a play with it by going to the Windows 7 beta download site. You can also download it if you have a TechNet or MSDN subscription.

Just remember it is still in beta so there may be problems or as Microsoft put it on the site “it may be glitchy”.

To learn more about Windows 7 and all the new features visit the Windows 7 website. Over the next few months we will be covering a lot of Windows 7 news.
