Windows 7: Why I believe MS condones leaks...

Why I believe MS condones leaks...

There are various reasons why MS would like their Se7en builds leaked to the public and most are not hard to guess at. But the reason I think they may actually be behind them in the first place is very simple.

Every time there is a leak, it is always both x86 and x86-64. This makes me wonder...Why hasn't someone that only uses the latter that has also gotten a hold of an unleaked build by official means not singularly posted what they have? Or the same for the former?

What do you think about this?

If they didn't condone the leaks they would have changed the activation scheme every time.

Plain and simple.

The availability of the x86 and x64 does indeed point to some collusion on Microsoft's part especially when you consider that the Pre-Beta builds tended to be either x86 or x64

It's just like living in a small town. You know who to tell if you want it all over town. As abuttino says, stopping it or at least slowing it down considerably would be easy.

Ah, but that only furthers what I'm saying. I didn't know about how the pre-beta builds were subjected to the public. I started following all this when 7000 was leaked early, just before MS officially served it.

If the pre-betas were only x86 or x64, and now that the official beta went public...since then has been the change to always both.

Well, no, it doesn't prove anything at all. But I also now don't believe that it is only coincidence that both versions of leaked builds have been available since...and none solitary.

I am agreeing with you that MS could very well be pushing the leaks, just adding another point is all. The more hype on the net the better for MS.

I think you're correct, I did see mention of the x64 but I cant remember it being available , but that could be the exception that proves the rule

Now that I've made this thread 3 days ago before we saw 7077 x86, where is 7077 x64?

Sorry to all the x64 crowd for the jinx.

Where are all these leaks coming from?
It's a bit interesting that the final ISO was leaked on the 23rd, a day before the royalty OEMs got them (they are supposed to be the first to get Windows). So... I think that the leaks are coming from within Microsoft. After reading this MSDN blog post, it sounds like Windows 7 was made...
