i have windows 7 full with crack, all working very well infact its the one am using. Its good incase you dont have drivers and its quite faster than vista.

Very interesting way of drawing attention to yourself, Tom. Especially with the "crack" bit.

A couple of months ago this group was buzzing with Microsoft's crackdown on illegal software.

Why crack when its still free?? Just wondering breaking an open door,

Information on Windows 7 and illegal software:

Windows 7 is the latest version of Microsoft Windows, a series of operating systems produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business

desktops, laptops, tablet PCs and media center PCs. Windows 7 was released to manufacturing on July 22, 2009,with general retail availability set for October 22, 2009,less

than three years after the release of its predecessor, Windows Vista. Windows 7's server counterpart, Windows Server 2008 R2, is slated for release at about the same time.

Unlike its predecessor, which introduced a large number of new features, Windows 7 is intended to be a more focused, incremental upgrade to the Windows line, with the goal

of being fully compatible with applications and hardware with which Windows Vista is already compatible.Presentations given by the company in 2008 focused on multi-touch

support, a redesigned Windows Shell with a new taskbar, a home networking system called HomeGroup,and performance improvements.

Some applications that have been included with prior releases of Microsoft Windows, including Windows Calendar, Windows Mail, Windows Movie Maker, and Windows Photo

Gallery, will not be included in Windows 7;some will instead be offered separately as part of the free Windows Live Essentials suite.

What is software piracy, exactly?
It is the unauthorized duplication, distribution or use of computer software -- for example, making more copies of software than the license allows, or installing software

licensed for one computer onto multiple computers or a server.

Copying software is an act of copyright infringement, and is subject to civil and criminal penalties. It's illegal whether you use the copied software yourself, give it

away, or sell it. And aiding piracy by providing unauthorized access to software or to serial numbers used to register software can also be illegal.
