Wow, you can steal software faster than ANYONE else!!!

January 29, 2008

So the hot ‘news’ in the blog community is that some people claim to be able to distribute Windows 7 Milestone 1 via BitTorrent.  I suppose this is news.  I guess I feel like it’s a big dud. 

Yes, we want to get an improvement on the Vista kernel (presuming they are using the Vista kernel, which I don’t know for sure).  And I understand the curiosity of wanting to see what MS is planning.  But really, I think it’s all a race to see who can garner reputation points on the “less than legal software” scene.

So here’s the article I read that tipped me off to this.

So what?  They may or may not have done it.  But the fact is that PC World printed their names.  That’s why people do this kind of stuff – to get “points” in their online community.

On top of the fact that stealing a prerelease OS is illegal, I’m having enough fun trying to figure Vista out.  Maybe I just had a bad day at work, but I don’t care all that much about Win7.  I’m not impressed.
