Anyway, your pirating days are numbered because all Microsoft products are going to use product activation.
need i remind you that he activation was cracked before XP was even released? duh, they WILL NEVER STOP IT untill they stop being such tight asses and work with outside (people/companies) to improve they're (security/products). WICH WILL NEVER HAPPEN! well not untill a few months have passes and they get really desperate.
You would be wise to get busy learning how to program in Windows and .NET tomorrow morning, because you will be even further isolated in the future unless you act now.
.NET is about as useful as a pile of wet ****... NOBODY USES .NET, MS actually rigged a poll to make it look like people were gonna use it.
MS IS DIEING LOOK AROUND YOU THEY'RE DESPERATE FOR MONEY!!
they might very well survive but there is an assload of new competition comming and they are gonna get hit hard unless they can legitimize themselves real quick.
