    ROFL, you are giving this forum too much credit, it is insignificant in comparison to real warez forums, which provide the full service, like an already activated ISO, etc.

    :roflmao: LOL! No, it's because this forum is not on their radar because it provides a negligible number of people (compared to the the global number of Windows users), methods of activating their products without paying, if the methods on MDL started making even a slight impact on their sales they would act accordingly, people who use these methods are a small minority, most people who use Windows as their everyday OS don't even know what MDL is, let alone what these programs do, MS are not interested in single users hacktivating their products, they are interested in companies mass selling dodge activations

    MDL is hardly a MS killer

    The same can be said about emulators.

    Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft is likely to become bankrupted anytime soon because of emulation.
    I emulate a ton of consoles, even newer ones but I support the companies and buy both the console and games also.

    Pretty much the same for all kinds of piracy, never seen Sony close their doors because of torrents, or Ubisoft claim bankruptcy because a few people pirated FC5, fairly sure all these big Hollywood actors are still millionaires too..

    Piracy/Sales = Two different worlds, neither much affecting the other

    The only reason there's a big thing about it is because the anti-piracy trolls make a killing from it

    I would add one exception.
    "Try before you buy" (H20)
    In the early 2000s this group shook up an entire industry.
    As a complete novice (I still am), it was a legendary time, and absolute magic to watch what these guys did.
    Back then the groups did what they did because they loved it, and for prestige.
    They wrecked encryption schemes Mission Impossible-style and all the rich guys got pwned!

    It's cracked in some way (warez), so not for publishing on MDL.

    I both understand and agree. I was merely reminiscing, and responding to MrMagic's statement that such practices don't impact their respective industries. I was not disagreeing with MrMagic, but simply mentioning that AT ONE TIME that one group did certainly shake things up a bit (in a niche market, that is).
