    Hmm..thatz a good suggestion but in hindsight thatz very improbable and is difficult to implement.Just Imagine the rigmarole that users would have to go through.

    How can Microsoft know that a person has a licensed version?
    Ans:By the Registration/product key,which all the pirated editions invariably have.

    Digital Encryption/Online verification is another step but implementation is difficult....Well,if you have an internet connection by which you can authenticiate whether the Windows is licensed or not,there's no need for updates to be sent on a CD!!! I think MS started this CD concept to benefit the large No. of windows Users who DO NOT have access to the internet and thereby to Online Updates.This Figure is substantially high in Asia-Pacific as compared to America.

    Whatz the Gain for MS one may ask...well, the first Updates CD contained an Anti Virus/Firewall Software of CA-a third Party software bundled with a MS product-how often do u see it? I think MS made lotsa money outta it.
    But this time the CD contains only SP2....it may be cosidered philanthropic but that suggestion is inane to say the least.....

    Re: same

    Dude, sp2 is a single file. If you want the files it contain, it is impossible cos it just updates the previous files. Understood??? There are no seperate updates to download.
