    You need a MSDN account to be able to legally download it.

    Just wait for the public beta (is there still going to be one?).

    Don't you still need a MSDN subscription though?

    All I heard is there going to release it publicly in February. Only rumours to me though.

    Expect Beta 2 around March and that should be a free download for all.
    There is a very good reason why Vista hasn't been given a "public beta" yet and that is because it is simply not ready for the general public to get their hands on it - it would just be too much hassle.

    The beta test teams are reporting and seeing bugs fixed weekly so in a couple of months we should see a nice stable beta release.

    Yes, we downloaded a copy last week. Looks fairly nice, plenty of features don't really seem to work.

    Microsoft have never intentionally let Mr. General public download any beta or build of Windows Vista. There is no link.
