Windows Counterfeiters aren't Microsoft's only opponents in its effort to combat piracy: Some of its customers are against it, too. The company is forging ahead with a program, Windows Genuine Advantage, tied to its free software downloads and updates, that checks whether the Windows installation on a PC is pirated. But some people, including some who say they own a legitimately acquired copy of Windows, have challenged the need for such validation.

In one year? Microsoft? Are all their savings in the form of stocks, or what? ;) (Seriously, I don't know.)

Edit: I mean, even SCO has stuck around longer than that since taking up litigation...
