What ever happened to the Beta 2s

If you navigate to the download page from:

www.microsoft.com

you now need glasses to spot the Beta 2s!

Re: What ever happened to the Beta 2s

Nice graphic of a padlock.

But since it's a security update, should they show a pair of boltcutters, a broken padlock, and some guy running off with your credit card numbers and bank account password?

Yes, IE 7.0 is still there but they seem to have made the BETA 2 bit almost invisible!

I think this is probably politics. I think what they are doing is rolling it out around the World in its various forms, but don't want to be seen launching it in the US and Japan before China. I think for technical reasons they cannot launch it everywhere at once so they have launched it as Beta 2 in this way and will have some kind of co-ordinated Worldwide launch later.

Yes, but I seem to remember the Beta 2 being huge initially, if you go to the next screen it is hardly there at all. We are all looking at the same version for now as I think they only have the one. Refer to http://www.idnforums.com/forums/2351...html#post16491
