Microsoft tries to stop Vista piracy monster Microsoft tries to stop Vista piracy monster

CNET: Microsoft tries to stop Vista piracy monster is interesting since apparently the validation function of Windows Vista is being hacked before it has been generally released. One method seems to use what MSFT calls a "frankenbuild" because it works by combining test versions of Vista with the final code to create a hybrid version. I should note that I am already getting daily spam for Vista.

My view is that it is a somewhat losing proposition for MSFT, given that there is more programming talent trying to break its security than the company can throw at providing security. It can't stop piracy, but the more it slows it down, the more the company will make.
