Brilliant TH for publishing this useful 'How To' pirate information. Job well done!!!For pirates, the exploit is especially useful as it provides an alternative to the company's Key Management Service (KMS).
Not sure if true or just a ploy to make me buy an SSDEveryone touting boot times... you know it never fully shuts down, right? Windows 8 hibernates instead, unless you manually disable "hybrid boot" in the power settings. Disable that, then compare boot times. They're hardly different.
