You've gotta be kidding me. They're running a business. Successful or not, they have to look out for their bottom line.
yeah - they have to look out for it but a message saying you're using a pirated version isn't going to stop anyone. Seriously, if they are going to attempt to do things like that - at least do it with some seriousness

This is for when people take their PC to shops to have Windows installed only to find out that the store installed it illegally. I have seen it many times and when i told people to try Microsoft updates they became very very unhappy.

I think it's an attempt to be a little less Draconian, and maybe even try to play on peoples' conscience a little.. I know it won't necessarily work on everyone, but a lot of people will cave in to a little Jiminy Cricketing.

Before i say this i want to mention my copy is genuine and i have the key and order history from Newegg to prove it.

"Oh wow, i feel so bad stealing $200 from a corporation that takes in $1,000,000,000s a year." Is probably the mentality of people who steal Vista, or other Windows versions.

Seriousness? Like what? Disable every computer that has it? Oh that would be a great idea, so all the people who got pirated copies installed on their computer unknowingly get screwed. That's genius!

In all seriousness, this is all they CAN do without potentially hurting users that honestly didnt know.

Unfortunately, you're right. People have no sense of ethics/morals anymore, it's really a sad sad thing.
