    Windows 2000 doesn't include any Windows Genuine Activation, but with Active-X, Microsoft can check the license of Windows 2000 that is invalid or not.
    There is no meaning to activate windows 2000.

    Obviously it's a genuine Microsoft key.

    You only have to switch the CD to the VL channel by editing a text file and it won't need a key at all. Then I wonder how M$ could check if it's legit or not...

    Windows 2000 haven't WGA, only Product Registration, which is optional.

    Isn't the key transmitted during Windows Update?
