    Ron;
    No one can let you have their license.
    But if you really want Vista, you can subscribe to MSDN, Operating systems
    or above:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/products/subscriptions/default.aspx

    Apply to be a Beta tester:
    http://connect.microsoft.com/
    However I do not think any more testers are being accepted.

    Or wait for the public Beta rumoured to be out this or next month.

    No, its not available to public yet, should be this quarter, I suggest you
    wait. You can acquire it though, by becoming a technical tester, Technology
    Adoption Program (TAP) Customer, MSDN Operating Systems (and up) subscriber.

    Why is it no one mentions TechNet Plus? You get Vista on DVD and costs
    $200us less than MSDN.

    Shipments take too long, by the time the build arrives, its obselete by two
    new builds.

    Because I am used to MSDN since I have never had a TechNet subscription.
    TechNet Plus about $499
    MSDN Operating Systems about $699
    MSDN gets Vista on DVD as well as download capability.
    Both probably not practical if only a specific Beta such as Vista is
    desired.

    That is true. For a beta like Vista, technet plus is a waste. It's great for
    other betas and eval software but 5308 hasn't even arrived yet. By the time
    it gets here I'll have another frisbee to sail over my neighbor's roof.
