+ - Windows 7 Beta already on The Pirate Bay 1

Submitted by pcman
pcman (658826) writes "Well it looks like Windows 7 Beta has made it's way to the masses a little early. A copy of Windows 7 Beta is now available on The Pirate Bays website. Microsoft is set to release the first beta of its upcoming operating system Windows 7 at some point this month, but ahead of that release the trial version has already — unsurprisingly — landed on BitTorrent sites. But oddly, Microsoft, which grumbles loudly and often about the "illegal" distribution of its software, remained pretty quiet on the whole affair."

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?

Working...
