This post at best should be moved to BTS or should be deleted because it may advocate illegal activity (pirating).

Wait, you basically steal a copy of and Windows OS and you want all the updates that go with it?
Do you expect any other vendor to give you updates if you bootleg their products?
I don't see this as Bill being the loco one at all


BTW, piracy is against the law, no?

I'm no fan of Micro$oft, I have a Mac!!!!

But to steal their software then complain they don't give you support is a bit strange IMHO.

Patches are Plugs that rectify the shortsight of the programmer. There are usually many security softspots in the software which any hacker or a person creating a virus can take advantage of.

If u stop giving the patches the virus will spread to computers without those patches and in process also other computers with genuine version.

Hence If I were a network admin I will be worried..
