x-32b 03-07-2005 04:12 PM

Before you question my background ask yoiurself where this came from

IF NO INFO ON IT IS AVABLE ON THE NET

search for LONGHORN BUILDwildcardwildcard
on the net see what resusults you get
NONE



Review
for the Preliminary Release of
Microsoft® Windows®
Code Name "Longhorn" Build 4082-42xx

So its been a long wait but i can finaly share with you the new fetures etc.
Again this is based on my REAL hands on experince with the builds.
So no spin just the facts.

First some problems printscreen isnt working but the gui hasnt chanded at all
since 4074\4082 avalon shots.So im having trouble getting my screenshots ill find an app to bypass this soon.

Instalation

The same install as 4074\4082
its a simple 3 step process.As with you can install in windows xp (it takes 12 min) reboot to be greeted with your new desktop.

Youll have the option to change whats installed,in reality there are 2 operating systems
installed "Media center" and "Longhorn" ,More on that later.
What is strange is the bootable dvd install you have new options

when you insert the dvd and boot from it
your greeted with a boot screen like the xp one but....thers no windows installed yet
This is windows pe preinstallation enviornment
when it loads you get the fimiler welcome screen from the dvd install
but now there are some new options

install windows ..normal 12 min install

proform aditional tasks..normal but click here

proform aditional tasks\scan
proform aditional tasks\repair
proform aditional tasks\boot

scan
my experience with faith.zip was a precursor to this
its a bootable virus scrubber.

repair
this is a tool to fix serios problems like missing or currupted files in the os
itll fix the ones needed by the os before the login screen

boot
Yep you guessed it its a Knoppix like experience
a striped down os like win 2000 that boots from the dvd.
itll let you edit files copy them etc no media player or paint etc


New fetures since build 4074\4082

well apart from the dvd installer theres a bootable media center os
intagrated virus scanning\removal,New Internet Explorer (a mozzie killer),
Media Player 10 is replaced,Better burning support,A good firewall,NO BALOONS,
New avalon Desktop,Layred Browsing,A simpletron mode,Better Voice control
And a cupple of others

Naff Changes
Again My Computer is now Computer
new wallpaper(for crap pcs who cant use avalon desktops)

Avalon

Fundimental Changes
A cuple of new things.
1 Windows can no be moved in and out in layers ie click on the titlebar move the scrollwhell in the window moves back a layer.
2 the icon layout thas changed, thumbnails are on by default and aranged in layers

Desktop

Ive talked about a 3d desktop before but its here THE "WALLPAPER" IS A 3D BACKGROUNDthere are 2 different ones a tree in a field and some moterway in america
Both are like a scene from a film.
the tree moves in the wind ITS IN 3D day and night are synched with your desktop the sun comes up and it gets brighter The wether changes from day to day.

The same with the moterway in the desert
Cars and stuff go up and down it,the light as the sun comes up shines onto the sidebar
Weird stuff but our 3d os is here.
Now ill be the first person to say this is useless but its kind of like staring out the window
i think its a nice tuch espicly when listeng to "media player" it gives you something to look at.
Give me a New York one please...

Layered Browsing

This is a simple one before i explain
dont try to compair this to a folder in xp os it work there
open up a folder and you get a list of icons and a scroll bar
here the scroll bar is kaput This is used in internet explorer aswell

now turn on thumbnails, in longhorn these are panes of glass suspended in a folder in layers
move the wheel in on your mouse and the "camra" flys in one layer
you see the next layer of files...
Simple and incredibly cool

Ghost Windows

Open up computer with the thumbnails on.now if your using media player and you maximise computer media player "flys" a layer behind your files move the camra in to use it and out ahain to view your files.This can be done with any .exe by clicking on the titlebar with the scrollwheel button.

New Applications

Media center

This is a replacement for media player 10 basicly its the media center edition of xp but its bootable.

when you select it at the boot menu it loads allmost instintly and your greeted with the dvd installers background pic.and the same colordepth\res as when you instyall xp (that screen where it asks for the cd key)
there are 5 objects

my music -intagrated music player
my video -intagrated movie player
my pictures -intagrated picture viewer
play dvd -intagrated dvd player
import -import files from a cd\dvd\memcard etc (wizard)

Functions are the same as media player 10 play dvd,wma,avi
sadly there is no tv recording mode.
In the os its a fullscreen app with ccontrols intagrated into the sidebar giving you an ipod style view of whats playing the cd pic etc its very easy to use and is built into the os ie it loads as part of the os

Internet explorer

Well its a fox killer
ive allready said before it could stop all of those search bar trogens where mozzie gets infected but now
it has layred browsing.
to explain if you have two windows open in fox you can tab through them in ie they are aranged on the Z axis in layers click your mos wheel in or click on the windows icon and the camra moves in through the web page to show the next page.
Its got a dap style download manager with pause resume multiple connections etc
its got an alarming black list of trogen links.
it has a built in cleaner to remove trogens like hijack this.
it seems to be nearly imune to trogens after 3 minuter on a rom site i usualy have xxx toolbar,cool web search etc but ive been there yesterday and the worst i got was a trogen error,os not supported!


Microsofts new search engine

google lovers beware microsofts finaly come up with a new idea.
on the bar youll see the search tile if you click on it and if you type longhorn.
you get a transperent window eith your rusults.no graphics to download just rusults and its fast realy fast
google seems to be in some serious trouble here...

Control Center
like Xteq Systems X-Setup this gives you hunderds of options in a catogry view that are not avable in the control pannel like tweaks and hacks for ie and other apps

thats all the New fetures since build 4074\4082

KimVette 03-07-2005 04:26 PM

cud u translate dat post 2 english plz? :D

amosf 03-07-2005 04:37 PM

This is really a bit sad, isn't it... :(

KimVette 03-07-2005 04:51 PM

What part?

The crappy grammar?

That someone is trying to evangelize the virtues of Windows on a Linux board, where people are trying to get AWAY from Windows?

That a wannabe is trying to convince former Microserfs (I know I'm not the only former Microserf on this board) that M$ pays beta testers?

Or, the whole thread in general?

This is a Linux board. While choosing the right tool for a job is perfectly valid so of course sometimes Windows will be the right choice for a purpose, and in others Linux may be the best choice, and in yet other situations MacOS//OS/x will be the right choice - but proselytizing Windows is more appropriate on oh, say, alt.lamer.microsoft.fanboys.die.die.die than it is on linuxquestions.org.

Has x-32b contributed to any legitimate threads on the board? Has he participated in any Linux-related topics? Or, has he only posted Microsoft FUD he has swallowed hook, line, and sinker, and trying to play up his role as a lowly beta tester as being something larger than what it is?

x-32b, everyone sees through you and there are plenty of Windows advocate discussion boards available for you to post your Longhorn "reviews" on. I think I speak for nearly every Linux user on here when I say:

We don't care about longhorn.

It's also worth noting that I've had my hands on Longhorn for nearly three years now as an MSDN Universal subscriber - and what's more, I haven't had to sign any NDA for it. Anyone who subscribes to MSDN Universal gets all of the betas and sometimes alpha builds of operating systems, development environments, application servers, and other prerelease items.

You, as a beta tester, have signed an NDA are violating your NDA in multiple ways and can actually be taken to court by M$ for violating that. Granted, being a minor it's unlikely you'd be prosecuted - your parents would be likely to be liable for civil damages, however.

You know, I'm half-tempted to drop a line with the URL to this thread to M$ via the M$ corporate web site - instead I'll just IM one of my Microserf friends who is on the Visual Studio team instead, and he could directly submit the URL to his superiors if he could feel bothered. Why? Because you're just begging to be prosecuted for violating your NDA in such an annoying way on a board where we just plain don't care about Windows. It's likely he couldn't be bothered, but who knows, if he's in a lull at work and is bored enough that pursuing it might provide a few minutes' amusement he may very well forward the URL on.

Okay, that took me a while to work out... But it still makes more sence than some of the stuff he's been saying...

pevelius 03-07-2005 06:03 PM

well, it seems to me that microsoft is really trying to make a very nice-looking world. i guess it´s nice to see that kind of effects in a shop when you buy a new mouse. "and shall we put 1 Longhorn while at it, sir?"
i just don´t know how fast it is to use compared to a good 2d-desktop. hopefully as fast, so that people can choose what they want.
the thing that bothers me the most is that it definetly needs a new computer to work with, old stuff won´t do.
well, i am a very happy mac-user right now. i just got gnome compiled via fink and i have now command-option-a switch that switches between full screen gnome and aqua instantly. it is definetly faster than dual-booting :) and you can run it in rootless mode, too. but i prefer 2 desktops, since os x doesn´t have virtual desktops by default.
i bet longhorn doesn´t run gnome or kde :)

liquidtenmilion 03-07-2005 09:35 PM

He is definately lieing.

The only way you can alpha test for microsoft is to be a member of MSDN, or go to a conference (winhec for example). Where they make you sign a no talk contract. Either A. you didn't read the contract B. you got it from a p2p program and then call yourself a beta tester.

If you signed that contract microsoft can take legal action against you for this, and if you didn't, then you got it illegally from a p2p network.

vharishankar 03-07-2005 10:02 PM

I have informed the moderators at LinuxQuestions about the dubious nature of x-32b's posts here at LQ. It has been found that x-32b has also been posting similar kind of "reviews" in other boards as well. He has also been cut-copy-pasting the same "reviews" over and over again not only here at LQ, but at other places as well.

As of now, may I suggest that this thread best be ignored for now, until it gets locked or until a moderator intervenes? Also I am very, very suspicious about how x-32b obtained his copy of Longhorn "beta".

i thought it was a fake when i seen the shot
did they make an os out of it?

Are you talking about LookingGlass???
If M$ is incorporating LookingGlass features in Longhorn, they either have to PAY license fees for it, or they will end up in court fighting SUN's patents.

It doesn't matter if it's clean room or not. Maybe under Copyright law it would, but not under patent law. What matters is who was first,... SUN. I've seen demos of LookingGlass (which by the way is NOT an OS, it's a GUI layer on top of a window manager, on top of an OS. So, old apps will be able to use it as well as new ones).

Sun has patented the LookingGlass Technology. It is based on Java 3D, and will be available for Linux and Solaris using X-windows as the video transport layer.

Wow! I must say, I am impressed. Microsoft has actually found some excellent way to WASTE your system resources!
Why in the world do people think they need this kind of thing? What a freaking waste! Back in the day, I seem to remember Mac being the ones who put form over function the most, but it sounds like MS has definitely surpassed them in that.
Thanks, but I'll stick to Fedora with the ratpoison WM. Can't get a much simpler interface than that.
One thing you've definitely taught me, is that I will never switch back to Windows for the rest of my life. Thank you for your valuable info.

I don't care. I've seen that link way too often and I really don't get the point of half your replies, its like you just keep repeating yourself so stop it. And learn to use our spell checker, all of your typo's most likely doesn't convince anyone to take you seriously.

And I've also asked for this thread title to be changed. It has nothing to do with Linux vs. Longhorn, rather your long rant and spill of the new features of Longhorn I'm sure 99% of the members here don't care about anyways. Remember, your on a Linux forum, preaching Microsoft features to Linux users doesn't go very far, especially with your grammar and spelling mistakes, your only making most of them laugh at you.

And links to screenshots doesn't tell anyone anything. 95% of the machines I deal with don't even have a GUI, at home or work. Showing pretty pictures of a new OS is pointless and doesn't prove anything, especially on a Linux forum.

Regards.

Yeah, but someone needs to show them how to make it easy...

You know when I first used multiple desktops (well, at least switchable desktops)? Windows 3.1 with PCTools.
Next was slack 3 and fvwm...

And after all this time MS still can't do it right...

Sheesh.

You are such a noob...

Mandrake[OS] 03-08-2005 09:13 AM

man this x32, guy sounds like an asshole.

Well Linux still outweighs any windows os, I mean look back at win 98 and 2000 those themes were just plain ugly, where you got from linux your nice colourful KDE/GTK Themes.

amosf 03-08-2005 09:26 AM

Yeah, it's the only way I can use XP... I have nvidia cards and the nvidia driver has a multiple desktop setup in nview... It takes a while to get the setup right, and I can hardly remember HOW to do it, and my son did his a LOT better with little icons in his task bar... I use the nvidia switching bar along the top of the screen but have it 50% transparent so it doesn't stand out so bad...

XP has a build in desktop switching tool, but it's a dog to use... With the nvidia switch bar it's a lot more like linux... and it has a window shader (reduce window to just the title bar) too, which is cool...

i agree
thanks for changing the name
I Ran into problims comparing phalius xp to a kernel :rolleyes:

but i think its a constructive thread
and i give facts only so it cant be misinturprited

the thing im looking forward to is the vr os but mainly win fs poladium and indago

" 95% of the machines I deal with don't even have a GUI, at home or work"

what ive been told this
history of os\s will be

way old I old I2006I I2010I

lh has multiple desktops but
"we must stop operating in a fragmented mannor" ie ghost windows are used insted by defalt
dont like them

right click on a blank area of the desktop click desktop properties
type in a number of virtual desktops
os select a number


when ur finished select layers off to have all the 2d fun you want

however turn it on and
say you have 2 vr desktops
scroll in once
the "camra" flys in through the scene "3d wallpaper" and you arive at your new vr desktop

Mess with the best? Fuck ya Linux is the best bitch.

That is exactly what you are using, it's fake fake fucking fake, it's a pretend alpha version of longhorn I seen the website dipshit I know. As for the screenshots, well for e.g the "fatman" version is ovbiously been edited either more cheaply in photoshop or somekind of runtime editor, ??? you could of done the exact same thing with the other screenshot, and who says it will look like windows xp setup? Awnser that bitch.

2 4080 is FREEWARE

Longhorn build 4080 is NOT freeware. Get that through your thick skull. Now. heck, you're not even supposed to show screenshots of it if you ARE a beta tester. You can if you're an MSDN subscriber because you don't sign an NDA to get MSDN builds.

ITS NOT I REPET NOT AN INTERNAL
It's not an internal test build, but it had to be leaked from Micro$oft? Hmm, you can't even keep your story straight in a short post.

© 2004 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.




Read before you install this product Back to Top

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

File systems: offline files
If you have used your current operating system to store any information in the cache, be sure to write the information in the cache back to the server before you install Windows Code Name "Longhorn." The cache is not maintained during a "Longhorn" installation, even if you use the offline-files feature.



Important information about Setup
This information about Setup applies only to this release of Windows Code Name "Longhorn."

You should install "Longhorn" only on a clean partition or hard disk and only in a test environment. This version of "Longhorn" is not intended for use in a production environment.
You can start a "clean installation" of "Longhorn" from the installation medium while you are running Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows XP, or a Microsoft Windows Server™ 2003 family operating system. If you want to perform a clean installation, be sure to format the target partition before you start the installation. If you have no operating system installed, or you are running an operating system other than Windows 2000, Windows XP, or a Windows Server 2003 family operating system, start the computer from the installation medium and perform a clean installation. If you want to use this method, and you have an existing operating system, you can format the partition during Setup.
We recommend that you start the computer from the Windows Code Name "Longhorn" installation medium, click Clean installation, format the target partition, and then install "Longhorn."
Important

When you format a partition, all data contained on the partition is deleted.



You cannot upgrade your computer to "Longhorn"; you can only perform a clean installation.
If you want to use the "Longhorn" Contacts feature, during the installation, you must install "Longhorn" on an NTFS file system partition or disk drive. Although you cannot choose a format other than NTFS during the installation, if you install "Longhorn" on a drive or partition that was previously formatted as a FAT file system, you must reformat the drive to NTFS if you want to use Contacts.
You cannot install "Longhorn" while you are running MS-DOS.
Setup installs "Longhorn" in the Windows directory only. You are not given the option to specify the directory name where "Longhorn" is installed.
You can install "Longhorn" onto a partition or drive that meets the following criteria:
It has a minimum of 3 gigabytes (GB) of free space.
It has a driver that has been provided by Microsoft or another source. (In the latter case, see Installing "Longhorn" if Microsoft does not currently provide a driver for your hard-disk controller.)
It is not a hidden partition or reserved for use by your OEM.
It is not a dynamic disk.
By default, the installation partition is assigned the drive letter C: when the "Longhorn" installation starts. If you want to specify a different drive letter, you can use an unattended installation with the following parameter (where X: is the drive you want to specify):
assign = X:
The user interface for "Longhorn" Setup does not currently support joining a domain. If you want to join a domain, you can do one of the following:
Install "Longhorn" using Unattend.xml. (You can find Unattend.xml in the /docs folder of your "Longhorn" installation medium.)
-or-

Join the domain just as you would join a domain for Windows XP after Setup has completed. To do this, open Control Panel, click User Accounts, and then click Start the Network Identification Wizard.
To install "Longhorn" on the same hard disk as Windows XP, you must do the following:
Before you install "Longhorn," install Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 1 (SP1) or later or Windows XP Home Edition with SP1 or later.
Install "Longhorn" on a partition that is separate from the partition on which Windows XP is installed.
If you want to run "Longhorn" as part of a dual-boot system, you can do so only on a computer that is running either Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition.
Installing "Longhorn" if Microsoft does not currently provide a driver for your hard-disk controller
This note applies if Microsoft does not currently provide a driver for your hard-disk controller, and you must therefore use a driver supplied by the storage device manufacturer. Before you install "Longhorn," you must use Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) to install the driver that the manufacturer has supplied.

This is explained in the following procedure.

To install "Longhorn" if Microsoft does not currently provide a driver for your hard-disk controller

When you are prompted to install a non-Microsoft SCSI driver or redundant array of independent disks (RAID) driver, press F6.
Insert the floppy disk provided by the storage device manufacturer.
Setup then starts Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE).
After Windows PE starts, if you installed one of the drivers described in Step 1, press F6 again when you are prompted to do so.
Setup searches for and installs drivers from the device-driver floppy disk.
After Step 5 is completed, Setup will finish installing "Longhorn."
Automatic Updates
The Automatic Updates feature, which helps keep your computer current with critical updates, is not included in this version of Windows Code Name "Longhorn." To help keep your computer secure, you can obtain the latest updates for this version of Windows from the Microsoft Download Center.

Windows File Protection
Windows File Protection has been disabled for this preliminary release of "Longhorn." The SfcGetNextProtectedFile and SfcIsFileProtected application programming interfaces (APIs) are also not supported in this preliminary release. As a result, Windows File Protection cannot help protect the critical Windows system files.

For additional information about Windows File Protection, see article 22193, "Description of the Windows File Protection Feature," on the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

Creators of information such as Web content, e-mail messages,
and documents ("Information") may use this RM technology to
specify permitted uses of their Information. Applications,
such as Web Services, e-mail messaging, and word processing,
may use RM to publish and/or consume Information
("RM-Enabled Applications"). If an RM-Enabled Application
has been compromised, the RM features of that application,
and access to RM-protected Information created for use with
that application, may be disabled; however, you will still
have the ability to use that application to access
Information that has not been protected using RM technology.
In order to re-enable the compromised Application andccess
RM-protected Information, you may need to upgrade the RM
components of the Software, repeat System Activation, and/or

3. AUTOMATIC INTERNET-BASED SERVICES.
The Software features described below are enabled by default
to connect via the Internet to Microsoft computer systems
automatically, without separate notice to you. You consent
to the operation of these features, unless you choose to
switch them off or not use them. Microsoft does not collect
any information that will be used to identify you or contact
you. For more information about these features, please see
the privacy statement at:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/longhorn/privacy.mspx.

3.1 Windows Update Features.
If you connect a hardware device to your Workstation
Computer, it may not have the drivers needed to communicate
with that hardware. The Software's update feature can
obtain the correct drivers from Microsoft and install them
on your device. You can switch this update feature off.

3.2 Web Content Features.
Under the Software's default configuration, if you are
connected to the Internet, several features of the Software
are enabled by default to retrieve content from Microsoft
computer systems and display it to you. When you activate
such a feature, it uses standard Internet protocols, which
transmit the type of operating system, browser and language
code of your Workstation Computer to the Microsoft computer
system so that the content can be viewed properly from your
Workstation Computer. These features only operate when you
activate them, and you may choose to switch them off or not
use them. Examples of these features include Windows
Catalog, Search Assistant, and the Headlines and Search
features of Help and Support Center.

3.3 Digital Certificates.
The Software uses digital certificates based on the x.509
standard. These digital certificates confirm the identity
of Internet users sending x.509 standard encrypted
information. The Software retrieves certificates and updates
certificate revocation lists. These security features operate
only when you use the Internet.

3.4 Auto Root Update.
The Auto Root Update feature updates the list of trusted
certificate authorities. You can switch off the Auto Root
Update feature.

3.5 Windows Media Player.
Some features of Windows Media Player automatically contact
Microsoft computer systems if you use Windows Media Player
or specific features of it: features that (A) check for new
codecs if your Workstation Computer does not have the
correct ones for content you attempt to play (this feature
may be switched off), and (B) check for new versions of
Windows Media Player (this feature will operate only when
you are using Windows Media Player).

3.6 Windows Media Digital Rights Management.
Content providers are using the digital rights management
technology for Windows Media contained in this Software
("WM-DRM") to protect the integrity of their content
("Secure Content") so that their intellectual property,
including copyright, in such content is not misappropriated.
Portions of this Software and third party applications such
as media players use WM-DRM to play Secure Content
("WM-DRM Software"). If the WM-DRM Software's security
has been compromised, owners of Secure Content ("Secure
Content Owners") may request that Microsoft revoke the WM-DRM
Software's right to copy, display and/or play Secure Content.
Revocation does not alter the WM-DRM Software's ability to
play unprotected content. A list of revoked WM-DRM Software
is sent to your Workstation Computer whenever you download
a license for Secure Content from the Internet. Microsoft
may, in conjunction with such license, also download
revocation lists onto your Workstation Computer on behalf of
Secure Content Owners. Secure Content Owners may also
require you to upgrade some of the WM-DRM components in this
Software ("WM-DRM Upgrades") before accessing their content.
When you attempt to play such content, WM-DRM Software built
by Microsoft will notify you that a WM-DRM Upgrade is
required and then ask for your consent before the WM-DRM
Upgrade is downloaded. WM-DRM Software built by third
parties may do the same. If you decline the upgrade, you
will not be able to access content that requires the WM-DRM
Upgrade; however, you will still be able to access
unprotected content and Secure Content that does not require
the upgrade. WM-DRM features that access the Internet, such
as acquiring new licenses and/or performing a required WM-DRM
Upgrade, can be switched off. When these features are
switched off, you will still be able to play Secure Content
if you have a valid license for such content already stored
on your Workstation Computer.

4. SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE/UPDATES.
Microsoft is not obligated to provide maintenance, technical
support or updates to you for the Software provided pursuant
to this Agreement. However, Microsoft may, in its sole
discretion, provide further pre-release versions, technical
support, updates and/or supplements of the Software, add-on
components, or Internet-based services components, and/or
related information ("Updates") to you hereunder in which
case such Updates shall also be deemed to be included in the
"Software" and therefore governed by this Agreement, unless
other terms of use are provided by Microsoft with such
Updates. In no event shall Microsoft be obligated to
provide you, free of charge, a copy of the commercial
release version of the Software in connection with your
participation in the testing program. Microsoft is not
obligated to make the Software commercially available.
Microsoft reserves the right to discontinue any
Internet-based services provided to you or made available
to you through the use of the Software. Features supported
on 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Software, including
some features mentioned in this Agreement, may not be
identical or available in both versions; please refer to
Software documentation for a list of specific features
included with each version.

5. LIMITATION ON REVERSE ENGINEERING,
DECOMPILATION, AND DISASSEMBLY.
You may not reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble any
portion of the Software, except and only to the extent
that such activity is expressly permitted by applicable
law notwithstanding this limitation. Further, with
respect to RM contained within the Software you may not
otherwise seek to discover the formats or protocols of RM.

6. LINKS TO THIRD PARTY SITES.
You may link to third party sites through the use of the
Software. The third party sites are not under the control
of Microsoft, and Microsoft is not responsible for the
contents of any third party sites, any links contained in
third party sites, or any changes or updates to third party
sites. Microsoft is not responsible for webcasting or any
other form of transmission received from any third party
sites. Microsoft is providing these links to third party
sites to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any
link does not imply an endorsement by Microsoft of the third
party site.

Problem is idiot, I googled it up. Once, becuase I am not intrested in windows, do you even have linux installed? You have no place whatsoever on this forum. Fuck Off.
By the way I am not continuing this petty arguement, becuase I happen to have a life, Good Bye.

x-32b, why does a paid-big-cash-by-Microsoft need to download leaked builds off of a warez site?

Here's a hint for those who aren't familiar with Windows beta programs: You receive a login account very similar to that of MSDN subscribers where you are given access to articles and ISO images of the product. Which builds you are given access to is based on various factors (e.g., are you just a beta tester, are you a large OEM, are you a M$ partner, external support or training house, etc. not to mention how active are you in submitting feedback and what issues have you required). You ar5e not directed to warez sites to download the ISO images.

Not only that, the install key is licensed to you, is non-transferrable (remember, first right of sale belongs to Microsoft since you did not buy the license, it is lent to you during the testing period), and is easily traced thanks to Activation.
