If you're not fast, you're last!

The deadline has passed, and Windows 7 Beta is no longer available to download. If you started downloading it before the deadline, you have until 5pm tomorrow for it to finish. The Beta has faced unprecedented interest, and Microsoft had extended the deadline to accommodate those who were interested. Originally, Microsoft were only going to allow 2.5 million downloads, but they quickly exceeded this and the limit was lifted. For those who have already downloaded the Beta, but have not yet registered  for a Beta key, you can still do so.

Windows 7 Beta download no longer available

Unlike Vista, Windows 7 Beta has received widespread critical acclaim, and Microsoft are said to be progressing the development straight to it's release candidate stage from the Beta 1. The schedule for this has not yet been confirmed though. Although Microsoft are still going with a 2010 availabilty date for the RTM version, we can see the success of the Beta maybe changing some minds and an earlier release date being given. You can view the official Windows 7 website for further information.

Have you tried Windows 7 Beta yet? Are you going to try it or wait for the RTM? Share your thoughts on the new OS within our forums.

Did you even read the comments?

"The bottom half of the lady stood up. What you don't know is that this video is edited SO much. The bench is different and the owner of those legs, most of her body is in the bench. The crowd is in on the trick. It's why I hate Criss Angel. He uses too many stooges, camera edits and fake spectators."

lol is funny and mysterious though.

Did you even watch the video?

You might as well have quoted a blancmange recipe for all the relevance it had to the video.

I can't say how that's done to be honest, I'm pretty sure it will be using mirrors though- either that or some seriously nice animatronics lol.

hehe, pretty good, but probably there are two persons there, a small dude on the top and one to act like legs, and he is probably inside that box, thats like they do most of the time.

It's pretty much what ^^ he said. It's a contortionist. Some magicians have used double leg amputees, but this one is a contortionist. A really thin one. The mask and hat are bulked out to give the illusion of a larger sized man.

They cut a middle portion of the trick out. The middle bit makes it a bit more obvious.

The part where they staple him together is just the top half curled on his side. You can see that the legs are attached as he turns. The magician is blocking it, but you can see the legs move.
