Alot different than a finished $50 retail game with a crack bypassing its security!
I have a feeling you are just jealous its not running on your PC right now. Its not like anyone is giving out links to download it, just conversation about something that is in early beta.
Tr1ck no one is even advocating piracy. All I can say is Windows 7 is alot faster and better than Vista!!
There IS a difference. But if your violating the license you're still, in all technicality, pirating.
