To my knowledge there are no Microsoft authorized links for Vista downloads.

Microsoft offered Windows 7 as a download through DigitalRiver and that is where the W7 links come from.

I'm not saying downloading Vista would be illegal as long as you have a legitimate key, I'm simply saying I never seen/heard of any Microsoft-authorized links to do so (with the except of Microsoft Technet members).

And the concern with things like torrents etc where you might actually find a copy is that they could contain viruses or key-loggers or illegally validated versions which put your system at risk.

Sorry
