Windows 7 Beta Released Today

So the beta of Windows 7 was released today (20090109), however if you were lucky enough to get a product key for it consider yourself one of the lucky ones. I downloaded the operating system several hours ago, however the site is constantly saying "The site is currently experiencing technical difficulties, please check back in the next business day.".

Two issues with that: (1) Today is Friday, so the next business day won't be for a few days, and (2) Microsoft is ONLY giving product keys out to the first 2.5 million people that can get in and snag a key. You must have a Windows Live logon or something and can use to sign on. Once you do that, open a new tab and put in the URL above. Keep hitting refresh and hopefully you'll get a key. I've been trying for hours sadly. :-(
