Re: hmm Mistake?
I don't think it would be unheard of. I mean, at least 50% of Windows leaks originate through the same handful of channels, so I think if Microsoft were truly interested in keeping things quiet, they'd find a way. If Microsoft is semi-tolerating some pre-release leaks, it's not a big leap to semi-enabling others. But I'm just guessing-- haven't heard anything about a deliberate viral campaign based on leaks, or anything like that. And for what it's worth, the initial reaction among those who've downloaded the update seems to be at least somewhat mixed. Some of our readers are expressing satisfaction, but a number of people on Twitter last night seemed to find it inconsistent and bewildering. We'll see!
