Microsoft's New Anti-piracy Tools Come at a Steep Price
It seems Microsoft's decision to introduce a new platform and technologies designed to reduce piracy and improve authentication in Windows Vista may come at a steep price:
Microsoft, on Oct. 4, announced
The problem is that these tools will initially only be available for Vista and the Longhorn Server beta.
That means that all those enterprises that are not allowed to run client or beta server software in production environments will not be able to use these new tools until they are made available for existing production servers like Windows Server 2003.
That is only expected some six months after Vista is released to manufacturing.
