My suggestion is not to download this, because it is an unofficial version and the official version seems to be available by this week.

  1. What is the expected date of final version Win7 SP1? Will it be released in Q1 or Q2 or even more late.

  2. @Candy It doesn’t matter what M$ does to stop piracy the people who use the pirated version will be using the pirated version. At least until there are hackers like Daz & Hazar.

    If you take example of India where the average income of a person is earning 950$(According to latest HDI) which is roughly Rs. 42k & where 30% of national income is contributed 1% of very very rich people. But today’s world is all about computer but they can’t afford it so they have to use pirated stuff. People have no idea about linux or ubuntu to stop piracy govt. have to promote these OS.
