Iranian hackers crack Windows Vista, sell it on street for $8 a copy

All the effort Microsoft has put into making sure this Windows would be the most secure ever appears to be somewhat in vain. Iranian hackers, operating through a legitimate software firm, have gotten past all of Microsoft's "anti-copying tricks". These hackers claim they will sell these illegitimate copies of Windows Vista through the firm they work for at approximately $8 USD a copy. What's really interesting, though, is how they managed to give each pirated copy of Vista its own serial number, so that they can register it through Microsoft as a legal copy of Windows Vista.Source: Taliya news

i have a real copy of nero,and alcohol120%.quite a few actually.

i dont really care either way if people wanna use cracked windows,for me i prefer a real os and run my hooky stuff on it.at least then i know the os is safe and upto date 'n' all.

i am a kinda try b4 i buy person,if i try summat and i like it and it is useful i will buy it.

my alcohol will run most hookey games from an image,my mates wont.i think that is the advantage of buying it.

hehe, he needs to update to a newer version ;)

and i dont use alch120%, i use daemontools, i find it a better option, less hassle then using alch image drives, and i havent ever had an app black flag dt4.x but i have had a good number of games refuse to play because alch was INSTALLED, no image drives running or insalled from it, they saw i had alch120 and refused to work till i uninstalled it.....stupid or what!!!!

I agree with Ashen. For example, games like CS:Source are bug-less and have great customer service IMHO, hence, buy it. On the other hand, games like Bf2 are full of bugs and need a 700mb patch to allow online play. I find that a little stupid, so to all the people the cracked BF2, good on ya's :p (just an example...)

i wouldnt call source bugless...just less annoying
they update it all the time because they have a good team and they actually fix things
EXCEPT the friends network...they never get that working right lol

yeah true, not bugless, no software is totally bugless :p BUT they have developed their engine to allow for a wide audience. Like common, a game with graphics like source running on a 2Ghz P4 with 512MB RAM and an MX440...no other 'new' game can do that without lag :p

+ their support owns (from my experience)

you just need an acct on a good torrent site or 2 ;) mainstream ones (publik sites) suck because most ppl hit and run or cap upload very low(this also lowers their download speed tho as well ;) )

torrents can be VERY fast, given you know where to get the best ones, infact i may upload a leigal one from an anime fansub tracker i use for yall to try :)

Tips for using torrents, dont use bitcommet, many people block it because its an abusive cheating client(its crap)

utorrent is the best windows torrent client to use, very small, low mem use, fast, full fetured.

if ur on a network with a router firewall put your system in DMZ for best download speeds.

infact here are 3 current torrents

try them out, remmber it takes torrents a few min to get up to full speed due to having to connect to peers :)

cap ur upload to 1/2 ur real max upload for best results :)
