Isn't that a copyright breach?

My guess it it will be free as the owner will be forced to hand it over to MS.

Its worth whatever the yearly domain fee is TBH ;)

Bit of a bad time to be selling it as eXDee mentioned....

However someone out there might want a W7 specific site, but could be interesting if MS got wind of it... they shouldnt care in a way as W8 is out but who knows...

Im assuming there wouldnt be any problems with trademark issues and M$ if the domain was not used for anything related to IT.  There is a company in NZ called "windows 2000 ltd" and they are still running today so havent had any trouble, the domain could possibly be used by a business manufacturing doors and windows etc... and M$ should not be able to seize the domain if this was the case. is also registered by someone in the IT industry when I checked and its linking to their website, I do not have any connection in any shape or form with them.

7windows might be ok, windows7 is likely to be a trademark problem... but it would probably depend on how you were using it as to whether MS would chase it down

I wouldn't assume anything, as you know what they say, it makes and 'ass' out of 'u' & 'me'.
Especially as MS has windows8 registered, so I don't think they would have much trouble in getting it back.
