Vista, Office 2007 Cracked

"Microsoft, it seems has always been battling piracy and copyright infringement of their software. It appears that Windows Vista and Office 2007 have fallen prey to cracks too, as torrents of cracks are already finding their way around pirate sites.

The crack for Windows Vista (which is called "Vista BillGates") is not a true crack, as it replaces components from the final version of the operating system with those from earlier betas. This allows the would-be pirate to use a product key that worked with Beta 1, Beta 2, RC1, or RC2, with the Gold release of the operating system. This allows the OS to be activated normally over the Internet, but does not bypass the activation system itself. Microsoft had made these earlier betas available to the public on a limited basis.

The other piratical news today is that a copy of the Enterprise edition of Office 2007 was also made available on the 'Net. This version, like other "Corporate" editions of Microsoft products, uses a volume license key (in this case, Volume Activation 1.0) and does not require activation over the Internet.

See I like it alot because Asus actually knows how to jam pack the back i/o panel. Look at all they crammed it. But man the board will cost $400 USD :(

The board looks really nice except one thing : WTF is up with the heat pipes! It's should look more clean IMO, it's not really integrated that well. Also, anyone spot a price for it? I didn't catch one.

Edit: Read SHifter's post, 400 USD?

Yeah, upon first look at the picture I thought the same thing. I guess giant HSF's like the Scythe Infinity won't fit on this board...
