Whistler copy protection bypassed
As can be learned from several sources today, the controversial copy protection of the new Windows version Whistler was bypassed even before it was released. Only a few interventions in the registry are necessary so that the operating system can be reloaded after an upgrade or change without having to register with the manufacturer.
Whether this type of copy protection also in the German version will be included remains at least questionable. As can be learned from Microsoft, there are justified doubts about the acceptance among German users, as these are classified as particularly critical. One reckons with the fact that many customers may be held back by the registration procedure and still prefer to stick with their old operating system
