I read this article on astalavista.com, it was something about Microsoft adding a new "feature" to the upcoming SP1 for XP. It stupposed to make people with a pirated version of XP not work or something, but I was wondering, does this also affect RTM builds of XP? just wondering, lets just say a "friend" has a pirated RTM version of windows.
