    Jumping on the band-wagon a bit late here, but, is there anywhere I can still get the Beta to test out? Or, will I have to resort to torrent sites?

    Not sure its still available, even so I think all the keys are finished so you would only get a 30 day trial :s

    Only partners can access it at the moment (Dell/HP blah blah) but the public can get it from may 5th onwards.

    Release Candidate. They get people to test it, and all being well this will be the one that hits the shelves.

    Star Wars day o.O?

    The Release Candidate has been given to MS partners, i.e Dell/HP now, so naturally it's already leaked The build is 7100.

    from a Pastafarian-Jedi

    As a pastafarian jedi, i can tell you that microsh@ft most certainly have turned to the dark side of the force.
    Personally i can't wait for this release, i have bought loads of useless unecessary gadgets ready to see if i can just plug them in and... Hey presto they work without me having to think.
    Its a good thing that microsh@ft has switched over to making operating systems that only appeal to childlike gadget warped idiots like me !



    (carcasm was subtly used in above post if you can't spot it)
