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.

I suspected it might be a problem because I could be caught with a pirate copy of Windows.

I was afraid of being fined. Not that it wouldn't work.

And I can say for certain that none of the issues were caused by piracy because, if you read the issues, it makes absolutely no sense at all that they would be!

"Upgrade with programs" limited because WMC?
Screen resolution problem?
PayPal option crashing?
WMC product key delayed for 3 days?

How could any of these problem possibly be linked to piracy? Seriously, how?
