Originally Microsoft had decided that those who received an invitation to beta test Windows 7, would not be getting a free copy of Windows 7. But there were so many angry complaints that Microsoft has changed their mind. But there is a catch. Only those who were invited to test the new Windows will receive a free copy of Windows 7 Ultimate.

On the Windows Blog it states that:

To show our appreciation, members of the invitation-only Windows 7 Technical Beta Program will be eligible for a free, final copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. For more information on how to take advantage of this, refer to Paul’s post in the .Beta_Program newsgroup for details.

Further details are forth coming.
