Windows 7

The latest edition of "Windows 7" operating system (the successor to Vista) is now available to download until Jan 24. So if you want to run any windows program on your mac until August 1 for free, download Windows 7 burn it to a DVD and either run boot camp partition installation if you want the full power of the system (games, graphics app etc.) or if you want to run virtually within OSX/linux/vista/xp download virtualbox (a free open source, better than parallels and fusion because it is free) and install Windows 7 into the virtual environment.

Don't worry about the beta label, it is more stable than Vista at this stage of development, now that I think of it, maybe I should be worried.
