While there certainly are Beta-Level versions now at Microsoft if you're working off versions 6 months ago they will be Alphas.

Be carefull with that if you are worried about getting caught. Not every linux distro is free. A lot of the commercial distros have versions of there OS that is not free and illegal to dl. So I would recommend dl distros from a legit site.

Linux is free; therefore it is your right as a Linux User to Download it.

Yeah; Microsoft said they are on schedule for a Public Beta version early in the second quarter. Probably April/May. Hopefully. Beta 1 will be a great difference from the Alpha FX gave us.

Sorry, I don't mean like suse pro or anything just the versions of linux that you are allowed for free, which is a vast majority of them.
