Windows 7 Release Candidate Leaked

windows seven logoAccording to several reports, and searches of several torrent sites, copies of the official Windows 7 RC have been leaked.

A search of our favorite BitTorrent tracking sites have found several Windows 7 Ultimate x86 RC Build 7100 listings, available in both 32- and 64-bit versions. Comments from several commenters as well as a few other blogs that have tested the torrent have identified it as the official Release Candidate (RC) Microsoft Corp. will deliver early next month.

Last week Microsoft erroneously posted a page to their Partner Program website that said Windows 7 RC would be available May 5, and be available for downloading by MSDN and TechNet subscribers sometime before then.

It is unclear where the illegally leaked release candidate came from, as neither the partner program website or Technet download link have the RC listed yet. But it does seem to be the real deal.
