How to Piss off Balmer and Steal Vista

Steve Ballmer is trying to find something to blame Vista's slow sales on besides Microsoft. His scapegoat for Vista looks to be pirates. Not the scourge of the seven seas, but the scourge of software developers.

Billions and billions of dollars and they didn't take into account Vista being pirated for their sales forecast? I know they said that it was supposed to be more secure with that Windows Genuine Advantage crap, but I didn't think that they actually believed it.


But if you want to become one of the Pirates that Ballmer is so mad about. There's a crack out there that stops the trial countdown clock from expiring. That way you get to "try out" Vista for as long as you want.
