Update: After a notice from Microsoft we’ve had to remove the links to (not) download Windows 7. We’re in tears too if that’s any consolation. :(

Yes, you heard it right. Windows 7 is available as a free download from this url. Of course we wouldn’t advise you to download it as it is illegal to do so. The only thing you will need, if you feel ballsy, is a BitTorrent client and some patience. Oh, and it might be smart to install this on a separate PC and not your main PC as this is just a pre-release version of Windows 7 which was distributed at a Professional Developers Conference last week. Still, it would be cool to have it before 99.99% of the rest of the world. So don’t go and get it but do let us know how it works out for you if you do…

If you are not planning on downloading Windows 7 but are interested how it looks check out this video:
