Micro$oft is collecting system information in the name of stopping piracy, in order to refuse Windows XP updates/patches for any user who is not using a valid product key. Don't forget that XP keys only work a limited number of times, so many people use the leaked developers' key which gets around that daft "activation" feature. Doesn't matter if you have a fully paid-up legit copy of XP, of course. You have to use their system no matter what. I'm sure there'll be a hack in no time, so yet again this will just violate everyone's privacy and punish the honest people.
