Windows Even though the Windows 7 beta had been available on piracy networks for a while now, it still hadn't been officially released. During his pre-show keynote at CES, Steve Ballmer officially launched the Windows 7 beta onto the world via TechNet, MSDN, and Connect. It will become available to the general public this Friday.

Distribution issues for MS

Given MS servers can't cope with Beta demands (probably most Vista users), why not utilise torrent distribution?

Make something like distributative sharing work for them instead of just whinging about it? Much cheaper for them as well as they don't have to supply the server infrastructure to handle the downloads.

Oneday they will learn. Looking forward to seeing it in action.
