Join the conversation on Windows 7!
The Microsoft TechNet Forums are an online location where you can ask questions on a variety of Microsoft products. It’s a place to find answers from many of the Microsoft Program Managers, Microsoft support guys, Microsoft developers, Microsoft evangelists, Microsoft MVPs and Microsoft enthusiasts.
A while ago Microsoft decided to use these forums as the official location to get support on Service Pack 2 for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.
Along with the release of Windows 7 beta a series of new forums was created to support testers of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. The first supported release being build 7000, which was officially announced today, made available for TechNet and MSDN subscribers and available tomorrow to the first 2.5 million people interested in testing the beta build of Microsoft upcoming Operating Systems.

Hi Sander – thanks for the link, but I should point out that I'm just one guy over at the forums – there are many more people there whose knowledge and commitment goes way beyond mine and who will do their best to help people out with their Windows 7 issues (and feedback!). Mark
