Hi,

You need to download it from IE. You can't download it from FF, or any other browser that I am aware of.

Cheers!

Yeah, you can't do a lot on the Microsoft website, like manual updates, using FF.

Hi,

This is a true beta release. It even says in the bottom right corner. This release is for testing only, it is not to be distributed. To answer the second part or your question you will have to pay for the official release once it comes out.

Cheers!

You need to sign up for the beta release before you can login in order to download the two beta releases(32bit, 64bit). http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/e...dd353205.aspx#

You first need to get a Windows Live ID going and sign up for beta testing as part of the process there. The main page to get started is seen at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...-download.aspx
