    I read some where this morning that despite SP2 not being out yet for XP there is already a crack for its anti piracy measures.

    I have certainly heard that their are cracks for the beta release, I guess we will have to wait to see if the real version is the same. From what I heard, they were only trying to block about 20 of the most common pirate keys, and there must be dozens of keys out there.

    Seems like a pretty half-hearted effort to me.

    It's a good effort on microsoft's part but as always someone has found a way to get around the antipiracy method. I know that microsoft will continue to come up with new ideas to test out, and as always it will be cracked within a matter of days or weeks.

    I'm happy about this, although I've heard there are ways around it. The more people that use *legal* versions of Windows the cheaper (theoretically... but then again this is Micro$oft...) they *should* get.

    I do not doubt that for a moment !mitationRust they are most likely the driving force behind it all. of course there isn't much microsoft can do about it.
