85 days before general release, Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system has fallen foul of the hacking community.
that's pretty much all one can do. lol
is incredible! You can take my word for it, this is the operating system you actually want. It is that good. Certainly worth paying for. It is funny to see all the little kids making comments about MS when you know that every company has leaked and hacked software.
What kind of lame hacking is that.
Is this the same windows 7 I have on my computer atm, you know, the one MS let me install and gave me a key to install it with for free? The one that is good till 2010 that I can actually just activate when it is officially released? btw, it is a great OS, I have not been impressed as much or even considered actually buying a windows OS since 95. That says a lot.
This key is probably blacklisted by now just so you guys know.
mmmm, man this is old hat news. This has been done with the old Vista cracks on Win7 beta release. Why I have no idea as the beta/RC1 keys are free you can get a RC1 key till the 20th-august from MS and just use that. Why people are fussing around with cracking a beta/RC1 Win7 OS, when it'll just wipe itself on the 30th of june next year with/without the key... cracked or not. It's just silly, RC1 keys are all OEM, there's no offical Win7 keys released so far unless the MSD keys are different.
I thought MS gave everyone the free upgrade to Windows 7.
You cant blacklist a leaked OEM key you moron otherwise you would blacklist OEM's pc's its a default key used for OEM's all OEM's use the same and have already built there systems built on this key. They cannot change it back as its not an actual key like retail users have its a LOT more advanced method of checking files etc.. than that. Before you talk BS statements know what your talking about in future. The cracks not perfect yet but its only matter of days it works though for 70% of people. Updates work and everything. Makes MS think your PC is an OEM machine and they cannot tell if it's not either. Just the same as he Vista crack going about at the moment. MS made its too easy to crack this time... It's what you get rushing out a new OS I guess though
Not only is this OLD NEWS, but its not impressive when you realize how it was done. But I will say this: With new software being pirated everyday, im not surprised, at all.
Really you 'moron' because I was using the EXACT same key earlier and now it's black listed. Jesus christ kid. Thanks for playing the failure game. I had to use a newer updater for it activate, so next time actually k.n.o.w. what you're talking about especially since you're probably not even running Windows 7. Amateur.
its microsoft.. haha
and thats funny why? Your a moron!
It's you are or you're.
IHEARTboobs is a.......
Unfortunate, but inevitable
And everyone will continue to use XP
Windows 7 is better than Xp at , at least for me. its run much faster in my computer and look much better. I love it
have fun in your 32 bit os running 3 gigs of ram. Those are some limitations you have there.
not me , i have no issues with 7 so far , and Xp has reached it's peak , it wont go any moe stable and faster on my rig . So time to switch for me
@Jolly Really, i don't care. That won't effect me and won't effect most people for at least a while
If you use photoshop, 3ds Max, Maya, Mudbox or any sort of video editing software, it has mattered to you for the past 3 years. Most people use their computers for more than going to n4g. Yes carl, I realize that you probably check out the pr0n
but isn't there a 64bit version of XP? anyway, 7 looks nice, but I'll still wait a few months before getting it, just in case, I'm definately not rushing to get it like I did with Vista...
The 64 bit version of XP had a lot of driver compatibility issues. It never ran stable for me even after I tried reinstalling it a couple times. Then I switched to x64 Vista and everything was well.
with hardly any driver support? Yes, yes they did. I own it. The problem is hardly anyone supports it.
Will you still use XP? When all the next lot of PC games are DX10+ only... meaning they won't work on XP as it's DX9 only.
Been playing around with Win7 on a friends PC (x64) and it is head and shoulders better than XP. But then again, I thought Vista was better than XP as well.
... if they'd just release it for 50 bucks orso, most people wouldn't mind paying for a legal copy and would even consider it quite a bargain for an OS they are gonna use for years to come.
If you pre ordered it from best buy it was only $50
Meh, after Vista, IMO it should have been free.
Yes, anything that is overpriced is ok to steal and screw over the people who created it.
I hate people who try to make up excuses to justify pirating. Stealing is stealing.
Okay if it is stealing like you say, so your saying that if i go to your house and let's say i take your car it is stolen right? But okay lets say i go to your house and i get a duplicate of your car just to try it out and see if i really want it but yet you still have your car but i have the exact same car due to the internet is it really stealing?
I guess in your book Robin Hood is an evil man, right??
Dude if you could go to someones house and get a "duplicate" car why would you steal his? Furthermore these people are not "trying it out" they're taking it and keeping it, stupid analogy.
Yeah maybe, but.... what if you had to buy a computer so you could make a program and it took you 12 months to make it, and you'd have 12 months of rent and bills etc to pay as well. and going by what your saying it'd be fine for me to copy it, because I'll only giving it a try... of cause. If I'm not interested in using your software, I won't pay though as I'm not using it and thus there's no requirment to pay for it, if I do use it... I won't need pay as I'm only testing it out to see if I want to pay for it and I simply haven't finshed testing out your software. So you'll be fine with me for no paying for the software you made even though you'd have the computer/rent/power etc for 12 months built up needing to get paid. Sweet!!!11!!!1!
FREE DX11, here i come.lol that's good for them, for focusing on only that defective POS console and not pc gaming.
Microsoft has never been a huge player in PC gaming. The only good thing they've given us (besides the PC architecture) is Flight Simulator.
Age of empires
They bought out the company after the first game. It was part of the Xbox buy outs to beat the PS2.
WOW* I never thought it was going to be this FAST!? o.O
I am considering pirating just because they shouldn't have released Vista... I am getting used to it, but it's no £110 softwere, it's like XP but slower... I can barely think of a improvement where I've gone waw AMAZING.
Everytime MS looses a client due to piracy, the consumer gain so they actually better their product. Windows 7 Should be free to whom bought Windows Vista
someone bought vista?! who?? where??? :)
im undecided whether to stick with xp or go with windows 7, anyone help? oh and BTW for anyone that is intersted, this is the key 22TKD-F8XX6-YG69F-9M66D-PMJBM
depends , if you got a high end rig , Xp wont go much faster and better anymore . So time to switch , unless you fear the very few games compatibility issues
men in suits will be deleting your comment and neuralizing you in 5 4 3 2 1 ---
Thats a big F#CK YOU MICROSOFT! Hackers 1 - Microsoft 0
more like hackers 7 microsoft 0
so you use linux/mac os i take it. i use both and windows but you dont see me mouthing off, at least they make something that allows me to surf the internet at laugh at people like you
no no no, you got it all wrong tdrules, he uses his moms PAckard Bell Laptop with Windows ME.
couldn't have happened to a better company well except for maybe Activision. MS is a garbage company that releases garbage products that are rushed and insecure. I personally hope sales tank for them on this and that is forces them into bankruptcy. They are not good for the computer world or the video game world.
so basically you want them to fail on the first "bug free" and stable windows they ever released ? Way to go ...
MS is notorious for screwing people. People don't hate them for no reason. Just because they did something right this one time doesn't mean they are suddenly forgiven for their sins. Now mind you, I don't want them to go anywhere. However, I do understand peoples angst toward them. Plus, I want Windows 7 to be free, as well. :)
You do realize if MSFT went under, we'd be in a depression, just like General Motors.. Too many jobs rely on these two companies.
Since Windows 7 should be free, I have no problems with this being pirated.
Yes, Ferrari's should be free too..
@cpuchess You can always steal ferrari :D But i think chances of getting caught and publicly humiliated like hell are much higher in this case.
If I buy a Ferrari and it doesn't run well and has a bunch of problems, your damn right I'm gonna take it back and demand a better product. Windows Vista is a broken Ferrari and I want to take it back and get a better one, i.e. Windows 7.
Vista works great! What is broken about it? ... except for the media hating it! It still works, will continue to get security updates and expect all future software that support Windows 7 will support Vista.
certainly ok but not great! it's not an improvement but rather a slight decrease in performance in certain areas compared to XP. before sp1, yes, it was quite terrible with problems such as copy time which are mare than always ridiculous, driver support which was also absurd and the most annoying was the crashing problem which was A LOT! I've never gotten the BSoD as many times before I used vista and that was with new hardwares! but the main problem of vista is the minimum requirement to run it! it's just a fvcking OS but in order to have a stable one, it requires more than to run half-life 2 on XP! although most of the problems are addressed in sp1, but the minimum still remains and it's still slower than XP sp3. so? is vista totally broken? no, it's not but a for new OS you're hyping and trying to force down people's throat but actually worst than it's predecessor, what M$ did was WRONG! I'm not saying that 7 should be free because afterall, they still did an effort to come out with that, but the price is ridiculous! after vista, people were expecting a more competitive price for 7 but NO, M$ is still being M$ with it's absurd pricing! p/s: @cpuchess, since when was ferrari is REQUIRED for you to run on the road and most of the time you MUST HAVE a ferrari to do a lot of stuff? I'm not condoning piracy either but that ferrari comparison is just wayyy out!
doesn't windows 7 ultimate have a limit of 128 gb of ram?
Yes, 64 bit OS's can theoretically use 128 GB of RAM. But the only way of getting more than say 24 GB of RAM into your computer is if you're running a server.
I think you're incorrect about that, since modern mobos can handle a maximum of 32 GB of RAM ...
But servers can use a lot more.
A 64bit OS can address 16 exabytes of memory.
Your Mobo may support 32gbs however in actuallity it might be (alot) different.
Well it remind RROD, is Xbox made by MS? Oh sound familiar.
