    Welll if we go by what we hear the new windows update which is due in oct the v5 , will be cross matching keys to the M$ database so if your key is not a key that was made by M$ windows updates will then block your computer out of updates. Now is this true? who knows , but is it possible? oh hell yeah its easy kind of like a credit card company has all of its card #'s in a data base so could M$, and are they able to read the key when we go to M$ for updates ? yes they are , so we shall see what is what in about a month

    MHG... a very interesting article indeed! I never imagined that MS would keep such an extensive database, but apparently they do. It will be interesting to not what happens in the future. Personally I would recommend "Ghosting" the OS before going anywhere near Microsoft. At least that way you have a chance of recovering a working system.

    There's nothing "interesting" about that article. It's just some self-proclaimed "expert" shooting off his mouth, when in fact he doesn't know what he's talking about.

    Could it possibly be true? Sure, anything is possible. And it has to be simple, right? Companies that sell stuff on the Internet do it all the time. You enter a credit card number and they verify the number in about a minute.

    So ask yourself, why hasn't Microsoft done this already? If it's so simple, and Microsoft really wants to fight "piracy" why aren't they doing this already? Why doesn't XP check your key against a database of known legitimate keys when you install it or when you use Windows update? Why does SP-1 only blacklist a couple of keys and not check *EVERYONE'S* key against a database of known legitimate keys?

    I don't know the answers to these questions, but the fact that they aren't doing it is significant. The author of this particular website claimed that the "big surpise" won't come till after the official release of SP-1 on Sept. 9, and now others are saying October. Funny how the dates keep changing.

    I think Microsoft is blowing a lot of smoke.

    But it seems if it will happen it would be more when they over haul windows updates to .v5 thats all I can figure and of course no one knows for sure but I guess we will all find out at same time, as for why they dont check on install how can they when the keygen is making a (valid) until cross matched that is and for the install they could not have all the database on the install right? but they could through windows updates and thats all even if they did so what ? you would be at xpsp1 and that is all ready very nice after that well someone will figure out how to get updates even if it is a little later like after an update is out a few weeks it will show up somewhere not on windows update sites , and if not so you will stay like you are now at sp1 or you buy a copy and go legit :cheers:

    Why are Microsoft only blacklisting some keys ?

    My suggestion for this move;

    Microsoft is like most companies in the business of making money. Some may say that the company (and remember that the money goes into paying for resources / employees etc. of the company and not just straight into Billy boys pocket.) has made enough but lets face it, if you were Bill would you suddenly turn round and say 'Hmm think I have made enough money now, I will give stuff away for free' ?

    Now obviously piracy is a big part of revenue lost to Microsoft. Not from the single user who grabs a copy from work but from the mass producers most notably in the far east who produce huge volumes and more importantly sell them to make a profit.

    As these production runs are of vast amounts, there are loads of the same versions pirated out there with the same keys and by blocking some of the most wide spread, Microsoft will put a crimp in the large volume pirates plans for the imediate future as they will have a large number of copies running from a blacklisted key waiting to be sold. They will also have, quite a few upset customers who have bought a copy and now find it will not work and think twice about buying another copy from the same people.

    Microsoft is not so concerned with the small(ish) number of people who download because (like myself) they are unlikely to spend the 250 on buying a copy of XP pro off the shelves, but they are using the software and becoming familar with how it works. The more people who use it then the more sales are likely (if 99 of your friends with priated copies are talking about it then you may be more likely to buy it especially if you are not too computer literate and can't find a copy or are just a good upstanding citizen :) ).

    If Microsoft only allow regestered copies to run then they would be cutting out a large number of users that they can sell extras to (like training, potential addons etc.). I am sure we all remember what happened to Apple compaired to the (IBM) P.C. due to (in part) competition and restricted hardware licensing. The (IBM) P.C. market grew due to competition with loads of companies producing hardware so the user base grew and sales increased. Apple restricted manufacturers and therefore reduced the number of machines and more importantly the amount of competition in the market place, therefore the Apple machines did not sell as well as the (IBM) P.C. when more people had and were using (IBM) P.C's (who whants a betamax when all your friends have a VHS).

    Microsoft will allow the small number (in real terms) to use a pirated version so it can obtain secondary sales and a faster bigger penetration of the market place for it's new OS.

    Love them or hate them, Microsoft are very good at what they do and that is making money.

    Just my (simplified) humble opinion.

    Rims
