Submission + - Vista Activation workarround - this time for real

An anonymous reader writes: According to article in APC Magazine pirate group Pantheon has released crack for Vista, which uses fact that big distributors (DELL, HP, IBM, etc...) have way to avoid the need for their customers to activate Vista. Using this crack you can pose to the MS as if you are one of the customers who have bought "preactivated" Vista. Real question is: a) Can MS revoke certificate used for this hack. b) Why hasn't this reached slashdot yet? :)
