   Starting Monday Feb. 24th 2009, updates are available for those lucky souls using Windows 7 Beta.
 The updates can be found by going to Start/All Programs/Windows Updates, as they are not being announced or installed via Automatic Updates.
It must be done manually.
I'm in the process of updating my Windows 7 Beta version now.

The updates including the driver update installed without a hitch.

Last year Adobe Flash took down 2 of the 3 systems. I would be more worried about that.
