Wait, really? That's all Vista does? Tug at your arm and say "c'mon, please stop pirating"? Not that I'm planning to pirate Vista, but that seems surprisingly lenient, especially from Microsoft. If Office will end up doing this to, I wonder how many people will pirate.
I don't think the number of "piraters" will change at all... in reality, you can pirate and still not be nagged or "shut down" by microsoft if you do it correctly... people will still have that same mentality "why pay hundreds of dollars for software when i can get it for free! its from microsoft.. a big company.. they won't be hurting for the money!"
If microsoft does begin to become more harsh or offer penalties, i can gurantee that hackers / download enthusiasts will find a way around it.. as they ALWAYS do.

mircosoft is just trying to make paid customers feel like they are doing something about pirating but like said before they cant stop it or really know who has it
this seem to be going in the wrong direction of stoping piracy. but, at least it help if people got a copy os from a seller.
