Does anyone other than Microsoft itself know if or when the CPP is going to open up again? I am beginning to feel like MS doesn't want any more folk testing its new OS. I wish I had got in early and downloaded the first public Beta release, but I had no idea that there would be a time limit on it, so I didn't rush. Why all the hoop-jumping?

Thanks for the link, but I have already tried that route. It's not allowing me to sign up or download anything.

Here's the subsequent page click here

Can you neither download nor order the DVD?

  BurrWalnut 16:05 19 Sep 06

I've just tried it, it needs a passport or hotmail address.

  ade.h 16:06 19 Sep 06

Nope. Thanks anyway.

I call them and see if I can get a CD and license key.

£6.42 for the DVD incl. P&P.

  ade.h 16:09 19 Sep 06

That's reasonable. Thanks.

I called in a small favour from someone I know who works for MS at Reading; she's getting a DVD copy for me.

because according to the Microsoft press Office in Reading they're still waiting for the DVDs to arrive from Ireland.
