Windows 7 Beta 1 Leaks Via BitTorrent

By  |  Monday, December 29, 2008 at 8:33 am

If you cannot wait for Windows 7 to make its public debut sometime next month, you can get on BitTorrent now and download it. The next generation operating system has appeared on the P2P service as an ISO file.

The build number is 7000, which is believed to be the one which will get the “Beta 1” label. It is a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate, according to sources. About 1,500 seeders are available for the file and it is approxmately 2.5GB in size.

Windows 7 Beta 1’s leak onto BitTorrent follows a similar incident where an Alpha of the OS that was debuted at PDC also ended up being available on the service.

Reviews seem to indicate that overall the beta seems quite stable, probably indicating that we will only see one public beta of this OS before it rolls into the Release Candidate stage.

All in all, it appears as if Microsot is ready to push 7 out the door as fast as they can…
