‘Belarus customs facilitated Windows 8 piracy’
While Microsoft is receiving a lot of criticism on their upcoming operating system Windows 8, it seems the buzz has also created a lot of interest from computer users. On the Piratebay (TPB) Software top 100, Windows 8 is on the 5th and 13th place, where its main competitors are Microsoft’s own Office 2010 and packages with Adobe software. While the download is very popular only a limited amount of people will be able to actually use the Windows 8 RTM torrent.
At the moment the server has been taken offline, but hundreds of people claimed to have activated their copy of Windows 8 using this server. It’s likely that Microsoft has contacted the Belarus officials to get the server offline.
