This was posted at Computerworld's site. I think it's amazing that someone who says that he's been a network administrator, etc. would write an article, where he admits to using no-CD cracks, for a professional computer newspaper read by CIOs--people who would hire him--and the Software Publishers Association.

It's sadly humourous.

Moral of the story, don't use Windows and don't be stupid.

I found this most....INTERestING. ;)

The upside of all this is that at the end of the process, my machine is faster and more stable, free of all the clutter that Windows had collected over the couple of years since my last reinstall.

Yes, because you're running Windows. ;)
