Microsoft and Piracy

Whoops! Microsoft has been delivering XP with files created by hacked software for at least 2 years.

I don't completely blame the developer who did this. Because more than likely they worked from home and had the software there, or they brought it into work. Why? I'm assuming it's because that software did a good job for them.

My question is, why didn't they ask to purchase the software they needed to do the job? Or did they ask? Were they rejected in their request?

Regardless, what's most interesting is that it took 2 years to discover this. If you're running XP, you should go and have a look for yourself. It's facinating.
