Cracked version of Windows XP

By Fregeus ·
Have any of you ever heard of this?

What do you think? Do you think that this is ligit? Is it even feasible? Besides the obvious legal implication, what are the fallout from this? Will you be trying it?

I was just wondering if any of you had heard of it.

"all of the bugs in XP were fixed"

yeah, I'll believe that remark.

I dont trust it right now. That is why I have no intention of downloading it. However, at this time of year, this pops out as people start shopping for Christmas (and looking to save some cash).... It does have the stink of ID theft all over it.

Even if it works (at least to load the Internet) it is probably calling home with your personal info (not yours as you didnt install it, just an example).

Look, nobody is imposing anything on you. Don't download it if you think it's some kind of scam.

No review, just an announcement on a forum.

There are also several comments, most of them negative. I don't normally take operating system recommendations from a racing forum.
