    Sounds like the Microsoft Store needs a security patch.

    Emil, is this name spelled backwards, "Ulugbek Shodmonov" ?

    Let's see a show of hands, how many of you think "Uggy" should go with the "illegal download defense"? That would be, "It wasn't worth paying for, so I stole it"!

    one word *****.

    Hmm lets steal from my employer then sell it with an Ebay account attached to my credit card so when the cops find out and they will, they come knocking at your door.

    Are there any smart criminals left in this world LMAO.

    They should force him to pay back the value all the software taken, give back the profits he made and send him to india or china to fix Windows XP pc's for the next 5 years :)

    Excelent humor...

    However the *news* of a theft from MS left me more than a little mortified because (a) I just bought my first *legit* windows OS / XP 64bit (b) purchased said OS from a US eBayer at an unbelieveably good price

    So clearly not a Good News day for me...

    Absolutely correct! Probably they could "sandbox" suspicious employees.
     
  12. still don't see how getting an unbelievably good price on a legit copy of XP, and then you read this article and your "good news" for the day is tainted?

    M$'s software engineers playing in a sandbox. Hm, that rather nicely explains Internet Explorer 6. Could it be that it was developed during a "timeout", between drawing "smiley faces" and stealing X-Boxes?

    Did they dump this guy in the Recycle Bin yet ? So hard to find good help these days.

    Sound like to me this guy created his own version of a Microsoft Windows Service Pack! He put the stuff in a pack, went home and sold it all on-line and got serviced by the proceeds! Sound like this guy went through a whole lot of them, (SP1), (SP2), (SP-Himself), (SP4) and so forth.......
