LOL; Microsoft To Ship All OS Bits With Every Version Of Vista

http://www.crn.com/components/weblog...leId=175802311

Quote:
Microsoft plans to market several versions of Vista but will distribute all of the OS bits with every product shipped so users can easily unlock and step up to more full-featured versions using electronic keys, sources said.

"No matter which edition you buy you get all the bits and a key to unlock it. Everyone will have all the bits," said one source familiar with Microsoft's plans. "Right now we maintain master images for each version of Windows XP and it's a lot of work. Now there's just one master image."
:rollingla Leave it to MS to make their software hackable :rollingla I really can't stop laughing

microsoft must be realising that people like the ability to change software...this is good imo as it means that users can customise there windows to what they would like, not just have what everyone else has

I'm sure they will find someway to stop us. Lets hope the hackers are better as useual. I think I'll still be on XP for some time to come, so gives them plenty of time to work it out.

-Not that I ever hack/use illigal software, dont even know how to. Like everyone at SX, honest-

Doubt it, they haven't managed too well with 2003, you can use a trial as a full version, you can use a program to switch between the product you're using (for XP, its Home and Pro and Whistler, and For 2003, its Home, Pro, and all the types of Server 2003). They tried making it impossible to use Windows Update unless you have a genuine copy of Xp, but that can be got past stupidly easily too. If they want to stop people hacking Vista, they're going to have to work very hard.
