Now as for the windows genuine, i dont like it. I am running a legit version of windows, but lets look at it from a consumer stand point. I have been burned so many times from a company renigging on a contract or a store refusing me a refund or exchange because i didnt have a receipt or it was out of their hands because it was a manufacturers defect. now...
Microsoft gets hacked and all the genuine windows turns off?
Someone figures out how to make a virus to turn off Windows Genuine advantage?
Someone figures out how to redirect you to a bogus "live update" site
Someone steals your Key
A computer company installs XP on your system that you paid for, and WGA says its invalid, so you go to that company and they are out of business
Microsoft decides not to support that OS anymore
Micorsoft gets mad at the world and calls it quits
Now what will you do??

But I agree with this point of Microsoft. They put a lot of effort in developping software, and then sell that software. I think their prices are a little high, but they have the right don't they?
Now someone copies it, and uses it without paying. It's just logic to try and prevent this from happening.
btw. It's not 'piracy' it's 'AAARRRGGHHiving'
