    sorry if I'm being a little thick. It seems to be free... I understand that beta editions usually are, but this is microsoft...

    I got this at the bottom of the E-Mail:
    Items:

    Product: Windows XP Professional x64 Edition - Download

    Quantity: 1


    Order Total: US$0.00

    So I guess so...

    from here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/6...n/upgrade.mspx

    the pre-release software is time-limited and will expire in 360 days.
    So, yes, it's free. For a time.

    wow! Just installed it. I like it, pretty quick. (That could be b/c it is a fresh install on a new partition) but so far it seems to be pretty quick. Haven't put it through any rough testing (yet) but I will soon enough.

    Wish I had x64 hardware to run it on. Or am I missing something? I assume this won't run on my AMD T-Bird 900Mhz?
