Pirates Snag Windows 7 Beta

Posted on January 3, 2009


As expected, the Windows 7 Beta (Build 7000) has washed up on the shores of popular torrent sites like pirate bay. This 2 GB file is gathering plenty of attention, but many people wonder if it’s really safe to download; as a leaked copy, it wont have all the features of the full public and developers beta releases so dont be getting your hopes up.

So, when is the real beta going to be released to the public? Microsoft has set a target date of sometime between January 5th and 13th. Until then, geeks like me will be waiting in anticipation to see whether this OS has a chance at giving microsoft back its good name.
