Much awaited Windows Vista has just been officially gone gold with RTM (released to manufacturing) release few days ago, but the full binaries of the Windows Vista final version has been leaked and distributed through BT (BitTorrent) P2P (peer-to-peer) networks by various crack groups such as XiSO, FTSiSo, ZWTiSO and CYGiSO. The final RTM version of Windows Vista has build 6000.16386.061101-2205, a manual change by Microsoft that marks Windows Vista is Windows Version 6.0.6000 Build 6000. The Windows Vista is full install DVD version that contains all editions of Windows Vista, including Windows Vista Ultimate.

Windows Vista
The Windows Vista editions that are included are English 32-bit x86 Windows Vista Starter, Home Basic or Basic N (without Windows Media Player and other media files for certain countries), Home Premium, Business or Business N and Ultimate edition. However, no activation is possible yet as likely the activation servers are not working yet to activate the Windows Vista. And although the Windows Vista downloaded from the torrent contains a registration key, but it’s not working as the key is actually for CPP release of Windows Vista, and not RTM.

However, Windows Vista can be installed without a product key or CD key. Without supplying the RTM product key (Beta or RC product key issued to CPP users won’t work as it’s using original PID algorithm which Microsoft changed after RC2), Windows Vista will install as a trial, with users have 30 days from day of installation to activate the Windows Vista. So you can use the Windows Vista at least for 30 days, and hope for a working crack or activation bypass hack to appear within this time period.
