Decode product keys...meaning that they are like 20 minutes away from a key gen. Nice.

Way to go on the anti piracy measures, MS!

Ok, I know I'm exagerating on the 20 minutes part, but still. Its not too impressive that people are finding how to dig up stuff like this already. How many months before the release do you think it will take the crackers to have the protection scheme figured out? That would be a great poll. =D

Another thing to think about is that its unlikely that all of these versions will be seen. Since it is a beta, its possible that these are just some possible variations that MS is throwing around internally.

Then again, MS could be completely out of their freaking minds.
