    As I am sure the enthusiastic testers are aware, Windows 7 Beta has been released to some testers. But, for those who are not in the list of chosen, it is widely available already on torrents.
    A word of warning. Unfortunately, for strange reasons, there are posters who deliberately put up fake torrents.
    If you are able to read the completed size of what you are downloading, this is what you should see for the iso.

    Sorry. No I can't. I didn't get mine from a torrent. But if you browse around at some of the forums that "pecialise"in these early releases, they are readily available.

    Yeah, I'm currently downloading it from minin*va...
    15% completed with speeds averaging around 60kb/s

    But the speeds can range from around 20kb/s to 240kb/s

    Interesting, though I think I'll just wait till Jan 7'th, and get the official beta. You never know if someone slipstreamed malware into the build.

    January 7th is one of many dates that have been mentioned over the course of the past couple months. Some dates include January 7,13,18,23, December 18, 26,30. So Who really knows? The only one that I have heard an official spokesman from Microsoft say is January 13th at conferences all over the US.

    Post carefully in this thead. It is against the forum rules to publish links or help to links for pirated software. The thread could well be terminated for any disregard.
