Piracy made easy thanks to MS?
As everyone should know, for about 2 years now (almost) every Microsoft product has required a 25-digit alphanumeric code to be entered during installation so that it can be installed. This key can usually be found on the original packaging of the respective product and without this key you cannot install it.
But if you search in the MSDN (Microsoft's Developer Network) for the keyword: 'Key' so become Installation guides are offered to you and they then reveal the CD keys to install some products. Now, of course, you should only use this CD key with the respective beta or test versions. However, if you take a Windows 2000 CD, you can easily install Windows 2000 by entering the CD key loaded from the web server. Of course, one wonders what the 'exclusive' CD key is all about when it can be downloaded for free from the Internet;)
