Default Microsoft goes BETA

Some of you might have come across the 'Windows Live Mail Beta' icon in your hotmail in boxes...well microsoft has put up several new versions of their softwares up as Beta versions for users...including the Windows Messenger Live Beta which is the newest MSN messenger 8.0,unfortunatly this is only by invitation and I have finished my 10 invites already so wont be able to send any more to you guys.
However, the Internet Explorer 7 Beta2 is out and its free for all to download via this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=58957
Its gr8 check it out.
All these small changes are setting path for the mother of all softwares the Windows Vista!

Yup.. I am using the windows live mail.... also had tried the messenger beta (without invitation)....
I really.. would like the IE7... ..and I am fine with the Genuine Check... but it doesn't work on my OS!... its a Windows Server 2003 SP1 :(
Any workaround for this?

Tried it, unfortunetly couldn't find any documents for the same.
So its either IE6 or IE7 but not both.
