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?
