Mirosoft gave the guys behind vistatorrent.com a framed version of the cease and desist letter that took down their site.
Although the demand for Microsoft’s second Vista Beta is extremely high, Microsoft refused to release a torrent for “security” reasons.
At the Gnomedex conference Chris Pirillo, one of the organizers, and the initiator of vistatorrent.com received a nice “gift” from Microsoft. It probably Microsoft’s way to let them know that they appreciate the initiative. Pretty funny…
Manager of Microsoft’s community team Aaron Coldiron said:
“Jake and Chris we obviously love, and we thought it was a great attempt. Of course, it does violate the EULA (End User License Agreement). Things do happen, and we thought this would be a lighthearted way to say, ‘Nice try.’ “
