Yeah, but it may be a good thing its being pushed back.

Remember Half Life 2? That ended up brilliant, and was pushed back loads.

And anyway, this is supposed to be the most stable Windows ever, because programmers are using more stable code...apparently.

Ah well, I cant expect it to get any worse than XP is (not that its bad), so it must only get better really, even though its built from the ground up I believe?

Haha, that's interesting. But you never know...they might've just put it in without even knowing it was pirated.

No, the person who made the music would definietly know. Its ihm/her thats going to get sued, though Microsoft is of course going to get problems with it too.

I doubt it'd affect the release of Viesta though. It was only a few start up sounds for Windows XP.

What they wouldn't have known, was that the program encoded the version at the bottom

Default Re: microsoft using pirated software

wasn't there something about a company sueing microsoft for using patented stuff regarding ram or something? my friend told me about that. it was pretty recent apparently.. i may be wrong.
but at the moment, it looks like everyone just wants a piece of that software empire.
