In the video he says they are adding more Windows 7 sessions & will have up to 20 when the PDC starts.

He also mentions & displays the (PDC95) goods w/ 6 DVD's & over 35GB of content, more than ever before.

I'd be there if it wasn't so expensive, its about 45 minutes from me by freeway.

the stuff on it is problary already in iso format, so just upload the stuff
but, the problem is who would like to upload 35GB+ of stuff.
People who goes to PDC aren't the 15 year old noobs who would like to leak things in less than a minute. Adults think things through and don't see the advantage of doing that.

Dont be so sure about it maybe no 15 year olds but i know someone that is 20+ and just like he told me he will , the second he got it he upload it.

so its just some guys like to share , others love to play the scene game, and others just dont like to share.

The 160gb HDD idea sounds really nice ... one little thing though, I wonder how they're producing them: since it's a hard disk, then that makes it easy to produce a unique serial number on each one. This might make it easy for them to track leaks. Oh well, it'll probably still leak anyways. However I doubt it would be an ISO, wouldn't they just Ghost the disk?

Yeah, I think Ghost sounds like the better option.

Unless they just decide to leak a build of Windows 7.


EDIT: YAY! 100 posts :D

Even if there is a sn, how would it be possible to retrace who leaked what?
They don't write down which attendant gets which harddisk,... :? (at least I can't imagine that)

People are clever, and a hex editor could be used to put a bogus SN into the files should there be one.

Yeah, just get two hard-drives and compare the files, then randomly modify the unique sections.

beta groups whould able to compare files, but will not leak the whole hdd unless they want attention which most groups don't want

also, don't trust people that say they're gonna leak something, cause there isn't a full set of winhec 2006 dvds floating around to this date.
