Submission + - Microsoft accidentally offers pirates a legal copy of Windows 8 (geek.com)

An anonymous reader writes: You may remember that Microsoft is offering the Windows 8 Media Center Pack for free until January to Windows 8 Pro owners. It turns out you can install the pirate copy of Windows 8, temporarily activate it using the KMS server method (180 days of activated use), and then download and install the free Media Center Pack. A side effect of going through that process is the Media Center key fully activates your installation, turning the illegal OS into a legal one with no money spent.
