Windows Kill Switch

It’s stories like this that make me very happy I’m not dependant on any sort of Microsoft product.

There are reports of Microsoft introducing a kill switch to WGA. The “kill switch” functions exactly as you would expect: if you don’t have WGA or your WGA authentication fails, Windows will stop functioning, totally.

This would probably be a good time for those of you using pirated versions of Windows to switch to Linux for good.
