Run Vista Free For A Year Legally

Microsoft says “It’s a Hack” but one researcher begs to differ. After the discovery of the Upgrade Hack shortly after Vista’s launch, this latest loophole has popped up allowing people to take advantage of a full year without activation.

“This is not a hack,” Livingston shot back when Lazar’s e-mail was read to him. “This is a documented feature of the operating system.” To back up his view, Livingston pointed out links to online support documents where Microsoft spells out the pertinent registry key. Nor is it speculative; Livingston demonstrated the procedure live via a Web conference session today and claimed “we have run this dozens of times.”
