"Chris Liddell, Microsoft's CFO, blamed the decrease year-to-year on Vista's strong sales in the first quarter of 2007, and higher-than-expected rates of Windows piracy in the first three months of 2008."

I thought that Vista was relatively immune to piracy. Has there been a recent "breakthrough" on pirating Vista?

I dont believe aything is immune to piracy,no matter what Microsoft say.

software companies try to make their products piracy-proof, there will be people who beat the system. It has always been thus, and probably always will be.

I have been looking at new laptops - what is putting me off - unsure if I want to move to Vista. I like XP, but I know I really should learn a bit about vista, but don't know if I can be bothered. I've worked on a few vista machines and the nag screens (are you sure?) drive me crazy

If you do not like UAC then turn it off, or you can "unlock" the true admin account and it all stops.
