What about the other 16 Million or so who also were "testers". Maybe double or triple that number as I'm sure torrent downloaders don't normally register on official sites for Statistic Gathering purposes.

From what I read on these forums -- many many people were using "Unofficial builds" and in a lot of cases also reported feedback to MS -- and MS certainly didn't seem too miffed about the whole "build leakage" issue.

I really have to suppress gigantic giggles when I read these sort of statistics -- maybe that's why the global economy went so pear shaped if the "Greatest and Good" relied on these sorts of stats for forecasting or re-designing their business procedures.
