Meanwhile the same people involved boast/brag/talk about running "hacked" XP.
A definition of hacked would also be handy.
Hacked doesn't always mean illegally hacked.
You can "hack" a windows install CD to be able to install any versions (starter, home, HP, Pro, Ult). This is legal. You still need the appropriate key to install that version, but it is a huge help to computer technicians who only need 2 CDs instead of 12.
The mods don't ban people for using genuine software that was messed up by an update. They are EXTREMELY good at discovering who is and isn't legal, and when there is simply a problem.
