Windows 7 Beta downloads crashes Microsoft servers

In a sure sign that the world wants something better than Windows Vista, downloads for the new Windows 7 beta has brought Microsoft’s web servers to a screaching halt.  In trying to download the beta since its release about 45 minutes ago, I have encountered only “Server Too Busy” messages when trying to login to download the beta.  I will continue to try downloading the beta through the afternoon, but as for now, I don’t think anyone is having much luck.  Great job Microsoft…
