Windows Vista Final - Pirated
Posted by: ironfist on Saturday, November 11, 2006 - 13:43
Submitted by ironfist
The upcoming Microsoft operating system Windows Vista has already leaked to the warez scene. It is the final release - the so called RTM build (Release To Manufacturing). Microsoft has announced the release to 30 November for businesses and 30 January for private customers.

The leaked release is the business release and supposely includes a serial number that can be used for product activation. We won't direct-link to the release but The Pirate Bay is a good start if you want to try the OS X and XGL rip-off out. :-)

Oh, you try it on your own. We won't say it's risk-free and free of malicious code..
