    they want to do this because unpatched illegal copies are given them a bloody nose when it comes to PR.

    worms like sasser prey on people who cant or dont upgrade. of course you do need a legal xp key to install sp1.

    I think its more likely because they brought about things like MSBlast on themselves...

    There were a lot of PCs that wouldnt have hit at Microsoft, if they'd been allowed to update... they shot themselves in the foot, and have realised it.

    what are the chances that in sp2 somewhere it identifies the illegal copy and calls home

    i hope not!

    Oh, there will be a tool to prevent that.
    XP-Anti-spy perhaps?

    But allowing to update will solve more problems than it causes, for sure.
