O trabalho, a curta pausa de Carnaval têm-me impedido de escrever. Mas voltei com uma boa notícia. Tenho 16 vagas para quem quiser ser "beta tester" do Windows 7 em Português. Aqui fica a carta de convite e com as respectivas instruções de inscrição. Atenção: só existem 16 vagas.

Esta beta incluiu a ferramenta de reconhecimento de escrita:

Blog - Omitek:

Win Tech:

Blog - Peopleware


Aqui está o convite:

Dear Beta tester,

By way of introduction, I´m a PM in the Windows International Org. partly responsible for the correct adaptation of Windows in Portuguese
As you know, we are currently working in Windows7 and shortly we will launch a new Beta program which we actually call "Mini-Beta" in which we believe you may be interested in participating
While in the already launched Technical Beta we focus on collecting functionality feedback (in the form of bugs), in the  mini-Beta we focus on collecting localization bugs (translation errors, terminology feedback, truncations, overlapping, etc.)

In the last few months some of you have shown an interest in testing the Portuguese Windows7 while it´s in pre-release shape, hence this mail . Windows International is inviting you to setup and test  Windows 7 Ultimate edition in Portuguese (Portugal). The goal of this program is to validate the product before it's launched in Portugal. It's a selective program, therefore Microsoft will limit the access to this build

The most active participants reporting bugs will be recognized by Microsoft.

In order to be officially be enlisted in the mini-beta program, please send the following details to  along with a brief explanation on your interest in participating (one liner explanation will suffice)

  • Name :
  • Last Name:
  • Passport Mail:(user1@, or open now an account in live mail "link here" )
  • Full Address :(Country, City, Street, number and postal code)


Since the objective of this program is to collect your opinion/feedback in the form of bugs, we kindly ask you to please abstain yourself from enlisting if you believe you´ll have no time for reporting bugs

If you know of people who may be interested in testing Windows 7 in Portuguese and give us feedback, please feel free to re-send this mail so they can enlist

On a side note, this Portuguese mini-beta will include the new Handwriting recognizer for Tablet PC, so if this is an area of interest for you, please feel free to also join to provide feedback on it

  • Caro Marcos,

    Sempre que tento contactar o endereço o servidor retorna o erro em como o user não existe.

    Será que é esse mesmo o endereço?


  • Caro Nelson,

    Desculpe a demora na resposta.

    Parece que o endereço estava criado mas só internamente. Por favor, experimente de novo.
