Windows 7 Pre-Alpha build available on torrents

Vista is only 1 year old and already a build of a brand new windows is out... Maybe Microsoft are bringing Windows 7 Out Early because there was a extreme lack of interest in Vista due to it being completely #$%# and no one liked it.

So I see Windows 7 as an attempt to bring people to Windows and away from Apple Mac OSX and Ubuntu

Here's some more info,

Windows 7 is alive and kicking, and despite the fact that Microsoft has gagged the details about the next iteration of Windows almost to perfection, details managed to slip through the Redmond giant's fingers. The initial Windows 7 Milestone 1 build was dropped at the end of 2007, and in early

January 2008, only to close partners of the company. But the development of Windows 7 has moved along since version 6.1 Build 6519.1.x86.fre.winmain.071220-1525. From build 6519.1, Microsoft went up all the way to Version 6.1 Build 6574.1, reportedly made available in March 2008.

But even with the development milestone label of 6.1.6574.1, Windows 7 is still at the Milestone 1 stage as ThinkNext revealed. With this release, the Redmond company has tweaked the installation process of the operating system only superficially, but now the License Agreement references Windows 7 instead of Windows Vista. The next version of Windows still features the same kernel as Vista, the move to MinWin has yet to take place, and even the same editions, namely the Windows 7 Business, HomeBasic, HomePremium, Ultimate, HomeBasic N, Business N and Starter SKUs.

The new Windows 7 installer no longer requires the introduction of a product key until the finalization of the installation process, and after the initial setup, and even at that time, the phase can be skipped entirely, permitting users to run the operating system as a trial. Windows 7 also creates a hidden 500.0 MB partition which is not accessible via Windows Explorer, and is dedicated to management purposes.

Windows 7 M1 Build 6.1.6574.1 features a touched-up graphical user interface. Windows Explorer comes with two new buttons, one for Views and the other for switching the preview panel on or off. The March 2008 edition of Windows 7 M1 brings to the table the Health Center, complete with mouse over reactions. Windows 7 M1 Build 6.1.6574.1 also permits end users to temporarily disable the User Account Control in scenarios where the UAC requires multiple confirmations.

this looks exactly like Vista so whats the diffrnece?

Apparently windows 7 might have some sort of touch features..

well the latest builds will be exactly like vista coz it is based on vista the changes will come in the later release

It's 3 years away :/

A few registry edits and you have Windows 2045. :-)

They gotta change the looks. After all the new Aero look is what differentiates Vista from XP apart from its infuriatingly annoyingly pesky security pop-ups. ;)

Ubuntu and Compiz Fusion has given Vista tough time.
