The entire VHD image was actually supposed to be uploaded yesterday, but Ed’s computer shut off mysteriously, so the pirating had to be delayed for a day. As of now, there’s heated discussion on how to properly turn the VHD image into a fully functional install of Windows 7 Build 6959. A few have succeeded, but most people are having trouble and are awaiting for the ISO.
So far, from what we can tell, the following features are included in the build:
* Windows Peeking
* Desktop Slideshows
* Modified Start Menu and Taskbar
For the doubtful, here are some screenshots of the build in action:
Since build 6956 was unreleased, I’m sure this leak counts as illegal. But Windows 7 Beta 1 is due to come out within a couple of weeks, and I’m sure Microsoft couldn’t be enjoying the hype generated around this any more than you and I could. More updates to come, stay tuned.
