Good thing Microsoft is protecting us from shady dealers installing pirated Office copies. Wait, what? I don't know why MS felt the need to put PR spin this story... wouldn't "They're stealing our product, so we're suing their asses" be sufficient? Rather than making up some BS about how they're trying to protect customers...

So Windows Genuine Advantage indeed sends your personal information to Microsoft if you are a illegal user or ... not..., well, who knows.

Another thing, even the pirates do not like Vista?

No I think they meant that customers who bought PC's from these dealers reported it to MS as failing WGA. I would do the same if I bought a PC and WGA is telling me it's counterfeit. Well Id probably contact the vendor first but if that failed I'd be pretty pissed.
