I didn't make it past the first question, which read

"What are the benefits of genuine Windows Vista?"

"Improved user interface"

"Faster PC performance"

"Full protection from spyware and malware"

"All of the above"

I first chose "Improved user interface", which was apparently wrong. Next, I chose "Full protection from spyware and malware" (which I knew was not true, but it seemed the next least incorrect) and was denied again. I gave up then, because I know for sure that "Faster PC performance" is not exactly a feature of Vista. It must have been a trick question.

There's a very good reason why Microsoft allow security updates for pirated copies of their software. Security hotfixes patch vulnerabilities which can be exploited and it would seriously damage Microsoft's reputation if, due to their refusal to allow illegal copies to be patched, a simultaneous DOS attack was launched from possibly millions of copies of Windows targeting an important corporate or, worse still, a government network!

It’s not that they’re being kind to people who can’t afford to buy Vista – they are just, as usual, looking out for themselves.

Vista does lose its functions if it isn’t activated but possibly because Microsoft knew that it would take most people a long time to get used to it they allow you to extend the 30 day trial period and you can legally use Vista for 120 days without activating it. It wouldn’t surprise me if they didn’t reveal how to extend that even further if sales don’t improve! So why would anyone want to risk using an illegal copy anyway?

I was looking for the "None of the above" button!
