Activation servers overloaded at Microsoft

We're seeing total overload on our activation servers today so some people haven't been able to get keys to install the new Office or Windows betas. We apologize for that and are working on getting more capacity online. In the meantime you might want to watch the keynotes from WinHEC. Lots of good stuff there.

And keep trying. Hey, I remember when I was a beta tester on Windows 95. I had to download the entire OS on a 28.8 modem! I did that every weekend. How things have changed!

  1. I read the notices above of microsoft activation overloaded in May 2006. No, in October is it still or again overloaded? Cause I’m not able to do it: keeps telling me it is in “maintenance… try later” . And the iffice 2007 beta has a limite of trials :(
    Thanks for any help I can get!
