Windows 8 To Feature OEM Activation v 3.0, Will Break BIOS SLIC Activation Hack

Crackers stroked a major blow to Microsoft anti-piracy efforts by releasing a BIOS SLIC based Windows 7 Activation Crack days before the official release of the software, while there are many other cracks and hacks like RemoveWAT used to pirate Windows 7 the BIOS SLIC hack allowed pirates to hide from Windows anti-piracy measures identifying itself as an OEM install.

According to a tweet by sp3ciali5t this is going to change with "Windows 8" as it will feature the next version of OEM Activation (OA 3.0).

Searching for OA 3.0 takes us to the following job post which reads :


As OEM Activation 3.0 (OA 3.0) Named On-Boarding and Launch Program Manager you will be working closely with the Lead On-boarding and Launch Program Manager in defining the launch approach and will be responsible for leading Operations implementation activities for Named OEM partners specifically. You must be customer and client centric, able to prosper in a dynamic and diverse international organization. You must be driven with a passion for customers and a strong desire to drive the successful deployment of this complex, business critical strategic initiative through strong program leadership, operational excellence, creation of business value and intensive focus on customer and client satisfaction.

Last time I looked Microsft was MORE than happy to take full advantage of their monolopy and rip custermers off at every turn.

If Ms priced their os at below $100 instead of the insane $200 + dollars for a full version of windows (not OEM) perhaps more people would gain back a little respect for MS and purchase their copy.
