and usually they remain annomyous, and usually another person takes credit for the leak, and torrents it after it hits betaarchive

if its not an iso, there has to be a way to install it on a computer. whats the point to getting windows seven, if you can't install it on a computer?

I think if someone wanted to leak it, then they should leak it in an Anonymous P2P network.

The guy, worked at Microsoft, was traced. He lost his job, was fined hundreds of thousands of dollars, was almost jailed, and had his child taken off him, all because of the two kids he gave the build to who leaked it.

They've had to live with that guilt since. One of them remains collecting rare builds, but has kept out of the limelight because he/she knows the consequences. The other has had nothing to do with betas since; destroying someone's life isn't something you'd ever forget.

Edit: Sorry for double post. But it kinda works better as two posts.

Why does it have to be ISO to install?

Infact, Windows 9x orginally doesn't come as an iso. You should have done some research before saying that.

It's an ISO doesn't mean it can be installed on your computer. It must be bootable and excuteable in without windows to install.

Windows 9x boots through a floppy disk. Then setup is ran.
Mac OS X isn't an ISO, its a dmg and it installs.

Similar to iso format is also installable, sometimes you will find images with *.img extension and it installs.

On the first PCD 05 dvd, the setup files aren't an iso, one will have to burn it and install it after. Or just run setup from there.

The same could be done on this hdd.

Problary this build isn't as exciting as it was suppose to be. Hopefully I find myself wrong by tomorrow, but I really don't think there is any significant changes compared to vista.

I wonder how much of that story is actually true? Is there any hard evidence?

I heard that the build given out at PDC will be also available on TechNet later, so it is probably a ISO ;)

I thought exactly the same when I first saw his pic, but It isn't.

Both pics are different from each other:
