Microsoft To Thwart Windows 9 Piracy With New Measures
Windows 9 piracy? This early? If Microsoft have their way, such a thing may not even exist, post launch. The company is reportedly developing new antipiracy measures.
According to some new information from Russian Windows leaker WZor, Windows 9 could come with some new piracy prevention measures in place that the company hopes would put a stop to pirated copies of the new OS from spreading all across the web.
This, it is being said, is part of the new activation system that Microsoft is working on.
Details on both of these are scarce, not to mention unofficial.
But while there is a chance that the technology titan might touch upon the new activation system at the September 30 event, we may only get more details about the antipiracy measures in place closer to, or even after the release of the new operating system.
Security concerns and all.
However, unlike the last time around, when Windows 8 was in development, Microsoft is taking piracy much more seriously. The leaker that leaked out the code for the activation system is behind bars, and it is a perfect time for the company to develop a new system in place.
We’ll find out either way.
Mission accomplished if illegal Windows 9 copies are not floating around software sharing portals, come release day. If not, well, such is life.
