Pirates have released another ingenious workaround to Vista's copy protection: a hacked copy of Microsoft's yet-to-be-released volume licencing activation server, running in VMware.
it’s an activation workaround. Admittedly a very clever one, and one that Microsoft will have a lot more trouble stamping out, but the fact that it’s taken the acquisition of a KMS server shows that Vista activation is still holding strong in its own right.
I agree, they will have a hard time convincing users to switch to Vista specially if the upgrade costs a bundle of $$

That's a very serious issue that Microsoft needs to tend to!
For me personally, untill now I've seen no need for Vista. XP is still working fine for me and doing what it has to do.

So? The activation scheme of every piece of popular software is always cracked. The time to the crack is solely Dependant on how popular the software is. there is no way for Microsoft to solve this "problem". It's not even a problem, it's a fact of life. The more complicated the locking mechanism is, the more vulnerable it becomes.
