All future Windows 7 builds to public torrent sites *April Fools*

Here is one for the news page:

You might be familiar with the fact of Windows 7 builds getting leaked soon like the 7070 screenshots, 7068 for 32 bit and 64 bit versions on popular torrent sites like Mininova and Pirate bay. In lieu to this Microsoft has now announced that all builds will now be posted to a public torrent tracker for anyone who wants to download them.

Now this seems a smart strategy by Microsoft, as whenever new builds are leaked torrent sites are the first one’s to be targeted.Not a single kilobyte of that transferred through Microsoft’s servers, which amounts to a substantial cost savings.

At this point, a more transparent process makes sense. We know users like the way Windows 7 looks and functions, so at this point it’s becoming more about stability and performance. Sharing the builds via peer to peer networks is a great way for us to reach a larger testing base.
With Windows 7’s popularity still on the rise, Microsoft wants to do all they can to “leverage that popularity”.Details about the tracker will be posted on TechNet tomorrow morning, and all builds after 7075 will be made available including the RC when Microsoft puts that stamp on a particular build.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
