Anyway, its reported that Vista Final wasn't even released to the beta testers and anyone outside Microsoft, and surprisingly you have a pirated version. Now the BIG question is: Who leaked the copies to the pirates? Since it wasn't available to anyone outside MS, it has got to be done by someone inside. Remember WinXP? The pirated copy was available 23 days before official release. There's got to be a mole at Microsoft.
