Windows 7 Hits Torrent Sites

It didn't take long for Microsoft's newest OS to show up on Torrent sites, in fact leaked copies of Windows 7 hit the Internet only hours after Microsoft handed out a preview copies to attendees at the Professional Developers Conference.

Sites like Pirate Bay and Mininova show as many as 1,400 seeders of the 32-bit version of Windows 7 and 200-300 seeders of the 64 bit version. Unlike the bogus torrents listed earlier this year, these versions should be "legitimate" copies of the pre-beta Windows 7 build.

Personally I'm staying away from it. I'd like to get a first hand look at the new OS but I'm not big on torrents, nor am I big on trying out an OS that isn't even in beta. Once it actually hits beta maybe I'll be able to get a copy to try out until then I'll have to rely on reports from others that have tried it out.
