Microsoft tries to stop Vista piracy monster
December 16, 2006 11:14pm CST
Microsoft released an update to Windows Vista that’s designed to thwart a technique called "frankenbuild," which was letting some people use pirated versions of the OS without going through the software's built-in product activation. The "frankenbuild" workaround combined test versions of Vista with the final code to create a hybrid version. How successful do you think Microsoft will be in preventing piracy of Window Vista?

Furrukh I so need to stay in touch with you! I mean how much money does one company need before we start getting the fixes to their software that should have been available in the first release! I mean I bought windows 95 and then again with Windows 98 and then again with windows 98se so why do I have to pay them for the newest version of Windows? Or at least how many times over do I need to pay them! Seriously, no wonder Bill Gates is the richest man in the world! I am just glad he has decided to do some good with a significant amount of his wealth. Should be more but what can we expect.
