Windows 7 – Pirate Edition

While common folks need to wait in order to get Windows 7 RTM bits, pirates do not have the same problem. It all started with leaked RTM torrents within days of completion (even RTM candidates were leaked). Circle now completes with cracked version (courtesy of Lenovo OEM key).
