VistaTorrent Site Shutdown

The VistaTorrent Site, wich was created to give an easy way to download the new beta of the Vista software, was pelted with a cease-and-desist letter this week. I don’t understand the bias for shutting them down, as they were offering a download that Microsoft is failing to offer at a reasonable rate, and you still had to have a serial number given to you by Microsoft. Sometimes I wonder if these companies even think through things, or just do things by the book.
