    I don't think this is a piracy topic since windows 7 rc was free in the first place. But anyway microsoft took down the download for the rc right when i got a relaible internet connection to download it. So now it looks like im screwed out of the windows 7 rc. Is there any way i can get it? Can someone upload it on megaupload or rapidshare or something and send me the link?

    If they took it down then there is a reason and the only way to get it would be through illegitimate channels. Ergo, a piracy question. :)

    But I'd be interested as well

    I have the file on my computer but it is pretty large 3.02GB. Would take ages to upload.

    If you're an MSDN subscriber, you can download the RTM from your account. Otherwise, you just need to wait. My RC version started giving me expiration messages just last week, so I upgraded.

    Microsoft is still offering the keys, just not the download.

    Downloading the ISO off of any BT site is not pirating.

    Yup. The file was free to begin with. Use M87's link.

    That is actually good to know, I've been wanting to try it out.

    RC Expiration isn't until June 2010, so until then, getting the RC is not illegal.

    However, the link provided is NOT to Windows 7 RC, it is to Win7 RTM, basically the gold master. So grabbing that is piracy.

    If you need to test Windows 7 and feel you meet the qualification criteria:
