    Well, let me say that I don't use pirated software, or condone it. It is theft. OK I can live with a bit of "bending the rules", but not stealing...................

    If you wait for SP2, I hear that this does not have anti-pirating features?

    Bill Gates had nothing to do with that! Either Microsoft! I'm over the compagnie that do software! Computer Software is an industrie that need to be protect if we want feature/security!

    Hey Memory...............I didn't neg him..............I would have thought he would have learned a useful lesson about pirate software from this...........that should be enough?

    I actually don't know the answer to the question, as I think it must be fairly obviously pirated stuff, and on some kind of blacklist as a result?

    I do not know how it actually works?..........but I do not approve of theft either..........hell If they steal Bill Gates' software, maybe they will steal my wife next..................nah......I don't want to go there now, do I?
