    I checked with our offers and marketing groups. Unfortunately, no, we do not offer Vista Beta as a Genuine Offer benefit.

     

    Microsoft does have technical and non-technical beta-testing availible for Vista, but it is not (in any way) specific to the WGA program.

     

    We offer IE7 and Defender as free benefits to Genuine Windows software (both of which are "bits" associated with Vista).

    After talking through with our European (German) subsidiary departments, yes, this is true, but ONLY for users in Germany.

    I'm sorry for the misleading answer in my first reply.

    Thanks,
