MS probably agrees with you, you'll just have to pay the normal going rate. Remember, we're talking about a ~$40 version of Windows here. It's more OS options as far as I'm concerned... especially if they subtract that $40 from an upgrade to the real deal. Voila, people that don't care about the restriction pay less for legitimate software, and those who want all the features are pretty much unaffected.
The real weak link would be whenever and whereever he physically took possession of the money. That's where his real identity must interact with the "chain" the money has followed.

Mostly agreed... but if Somali pirates can get money wired to them anonymously - why not this guy?

Noisy exhausts save lives - do your part.
^ Citation Needed I'm tired of hearing the myth that loud exhaust save lives. Drawing all other drivers' attention to your vehicle is anything *but* safe for them. And if by "lives", you mean just of those who have loud exhaust... then consider this - you (and by extension those around you) are less able to hear *important* noises that signal danger (sirens, car horns). Driving defensively (and like you're invisible if you're a biker as I am) is a far safer and more practical solution for everyone.
And people won't think you're a flaming jackass.
