Re: Windows 7 Intentionally leaked???
I wouldn't say intentional, but more of a coincidence. If they were planning on giving it out to testers/writers before CES then it would likely be from that.
I can't think of a good way to put it, but Microsoft would likely know when their software is going to leak. The developers and the people who work with Windows 7 aren't going to be the ones handing it out. They probably have to make a decision of when it's polished enough to give to the next tier of people because they know someone is going to let it leak onto the net. So whether it was intentional or not, they probably knew it was going to happen.
