Default Read this in paper!!

Well, I was just reading the newspaper now, and Microsoft are making versions of XP, 2000, ME, office, etc etc, and sharing it on all the P2P programs known.

These versions of operating systems, and programs will contain a code that will contact microsoft when the product is installed - so M/S would then track you and fine you! Seriosley!

I think this is an ace idea, it wont be long until people find the code and hit that delete button...

Yeah the software would work on computers that were offline 24/7 - but if its done on a computer that is on the internet at some point, you would get clocked.

oh, offline...common sence that i didn't even think of. but not that i would download windows off of p2p, i've got a legal version. that's a pretty smart idea though, but i really don't understand what the big freakin deal is with the pirated OS's. microsoft has really buckled down lately with this.

Any you think M/S havent thought of that, alot of the newer products require you to register online before you can use the product...

No actually, a lot of million dollars are lost each day because of this. If we were smart enough to buy it, you would have felt more secure. Like my OS. It is PURE Genuine. I like it like that.

well if he wasn't such an idiot in the way he asked to see it, he might have been able to get his hands on the cd key. Luckily the tech knew exactly was he was up to.
