    Nothing wrong with that post. You still need a legit key for it to work so it's not like you're posting a cracked version or something.

    Xeromist, it's a gray area. Legal because you need the key to use it but some would consider it theft of bandwidth due to one not purchasing the software directly from Digital River.

    Ah OK. Well that's not an issue IMHO. It's in an unsecured pub folder. If they were worried about random people downloading it then they would put at least some basic security on it. My guess is that they bill Microsoft for the downloads (or charge them so much that they just have and unlimited account). Given the whole reason you need to download an ISO in the first place is because Microsoft and system builders are cutting corners on distribution there should be no issue with people getting what they need from a public source funded by Microsoft.
