Out of the bag
 
Didn't take long.

Windows Vista, IE7 Betas Leak to Web
By Nate Mook, BetaNews

Less than 24 hours after Microsoft announced the release of Windows Vista
Beta 1 and Internet Explorer 7 Beta 1 to testers and MSDN subscribers, both
betas have leaked to Internet sites and newsgroups along with a crack for
Windows Product Activation, according to BetaNews sources.

The Vista download weighs in at close to 2.5GB, but the operating system's
heft did not keep the pirates away. The next-generation Windows beta likely
uses the same activation technology found in Windows XP, which was
compromised long ago.


Such a leak is not that surprising considering over 10,000 beta testers were
included in the first round of testing alone. Those numbers do not count
MSDN subscribers who were also given access to the Beta 1 bits.

Alpha builds of the operating system, then code-named Longhorn, have
frequently leaked from Microsoft labs during development. And Microsoft
encountered the same problems with Windows Whistler, which later became
Windows XP.

Internet Explorer 7 Beta 1, which is available within Windows Vista and on
its own, requires Windows Genuine Advantage verification to install, sources
said. Microsoft opted not to make the first beta publicly available, and has
not set a timeline for the final release of its long-awaited new Web
browser.

Microsoft representatives were not available to comment on the leaks by
press time.

Re: Out of the bag
 
Thats what you get with a popular product and human nature wanting to share
with the world. all software including microsofts will be leaked and cracked
like the WGA bypass.

Their DRM was before the new build 3802 of WMP was released, infact before
XPSP2 there were confirmed reports of a proper keygen that worked and
actavited the copies of XP and office 2003 beta.

At the end of the day all the software companies will keep trying to protect
there software and still it will always be undermined. Microsofts activation
took long enough to break that it shows how far they are getting better at
anti piracy mesures which is good.

The only flaw i see in it is the biggest of all which is usefull to big
companies is the volume licience versions without activation which are the
ones likely to get pirated.

I didn't expect beta1 for x64 to be as responsive as it is. Very nimble.
