The only thing sad about this is why anyone would want to hack windows 8 when you can buy the upgrade for 39.99.:rolleyes:

Because 39.99 is still greater than 0

Once a judge in a German court ruling said that some things will be copied even if they only cost 0.01 (Euros in that case) and yes - many people would probably even copy Windows for that price.

Of course, on one of these WinUpdates or a visit to some AppStore, the activation service will be phoning home and relaying any number of illegitimacies. And with the price increasing Feb 2013, I wouldn’t be shocked if MS wasn’t setting a lot of hacks up to be de-activated just after Feb’s OS price increases kick in. What a sneaky thing to do! Yeah - $40 isn’t zero, and $100 isn’t $40.

I keep seeing images of trench-coated men in darkened alleys as young innocents walk past. “Psst, kid - wanna try something good? It’s free,” and under his breath, he’s laughing, “…for now.”

Oh boy - REALLY gettin’ away with something fine!

Those updates were targeted on activation methods using WMC afaik.
Since you’re probably wasn’t using that method, those updates won’t affect your OS activation status.
