Windows Steve Ballmer has just announced that in the first three days of being on sale, more than 4 million people have bought the Windows 8 upgrade. This doesn't count OEM installations or Microsoft's own Surface - just individual upgrades. Definitely a promising start for Windows 8, but then, these are most likely enthusiasts (I'm one of those four million), so we still don't know a whole lot. I'm patiently waiting for the response from regular consumers.

So let me get this straight. You think:

1. That MS deliberately rigged its upgrade assistant to not work on pirated copies that are trying to go legitimate.

2. That all the other people with that exact same issue must all be running pirated copies.

3. That because that one issue might (but isn't) be cause by piracy, that this somehow excuses all of the other bizarre issues, that are obviously not related.

Interesting.
