Wednesday 26 April 2006 @ 12:27 am

I’m back with a bad news to whom using pirated copy of Windows operating system. Finally, Microsoft has decided to put up a message on the login screen for every pirated Windows user.

Windows Piracy Message

Quoted:
Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of local PC users running pirated Windows operating systems will soon face the shame of being reminded of their illegal action every time they switch on their machines.

Face the shame? Not sure about this but I suppose the anti-piracy message will be very annoying.

This anti-piracy message will appear after the next Windows update commencing today (April 26, 2006). At the moment, only users of pirated Windows in the following five countries will experience this “new” and “special” feature, they are United States, Britain, New Zealand, Australia and Malaysia.

Well, Windows with this “special” feature can still receive software update, but not allowed to upgrade Internet Explorer to version 7 and download Windows Defender.

For more information, read the source.
