WGA Now More Indecisive than Ever

Everybody's favorite malfunctioning anti-piracy software is back, and it's got a spectacular new wrinkle: a shrug of the shoulders that indicates that it's "not sure" whether your software is genuine.

We're not sure what WGA will do if it's not sure about your installation, but we're curious to get feedback on the new system as soon as folks start using it. So, please, be sure to drop an e-mail to [email protected] as soon as you've had some adventures with the new, less judgmental WGA.
