If I wasn't going to steal it before...

If Circuit City were sitting across from a police station, with 3 police cars in its parking lot, with police in them, I would still break in and steal that shit from the STORE before I'd pay for it. f- MS.

ME was almost as bad as 98.

To be honest, I was anti-windows, pro-mac and I liked the idea of Linux up until Win 2k and XP, when I realized MS can actually make a decent OS. Unfortunately, their protection for Vista is so inconvenient for legal consumers that only an idiot would pay for it.

I was very happy with '98 until several years after XPs release.

I will stick with XP until I absolutely must change for DX10. Then, I will steal an "uber" or "ultimate" copy of Vista. You know, the ones that come with lots of pre-installed apps.

Dear Mr. Korte:

DX9 has to to be used to it's full potential, and DX10 doesn't have enough of a performance gain over DX9 to be worth even stealing Vista.

XP Pro is the way to go, [i]barthelago[/i].

Well, for games anyway.

you have sex with that penguin dont you?

anyway, if MS came to their senses and just sold Windows Vista (full) for like 100$ and all the budget versions less than that, I think they would make much, much more money.

just download a cracked copy. WGA is easily disabled, even in vista. I wont be able to download updates, but I dont care. Anti-Virus is your friend.

As for cd keys, just phone when internet activation doesn't work. Trust me, I make about 3 of those calls a day at work. They only ask for the first string of numbers (6 out of 30) and then they give you a nice code to activate.
They don't expect anyone pirating windows to be ballsy enough to actually phone...

Yea, they don't expect you to pay for a new Vista key. You'd just have to activate over the phone every time you changed your hardware.

In a case such as mine, that'd get old, FAST. Thank god they changed the EULA.
