I mean, it's been six days since the RTM first leaked on BitTorrent. SIx days! That's like an eternity. At any rate, it is true—Windows 7 RTM Ultimate has already been cracked using a Lenovo OEM product key.
It should come as no surprise—but Windows 7 Build 7600.16385, which Microsoft deemed the RTM, has been unceremoniously leaked. A Chinese 64-bit version was first posted on torrent sites on July 16th with an English version released later that day. As always, grab at your own risk. [The New York Times]
Microsoft released a more detailed timeline of exactly who will get Windows 7 RTM and when, and we're sure you're dying to know. But you better hope you're a bigshot if you want to be the first to grab it.
Microsoft is expected to officially announce the Windows 7 RTM this week at their Worldwide Partner Conference, but a few users are reporting the OS is actually available today with build 7600.
