Vista crack that allegedly works

Apparently?a genuine crack for Windows Vista has just been released by pirate group Pantheon, which allows pirated, non-activated installations of Vista (Home Basic/Premium and Ultimate) to be properly activated and made fully-operational. Unlike cracks which have been floating around since Vista RTM was released in late November, this crack doesn?t simply get around product activation with beta activation files or timestop cracks – it actually makes use of the activation process. It seems that Microsoft has allowed large OEMs like ASUS to ship their products with a pre-installed version of Vista that doesn?t require product activation ? apparently because end users would find it too inconvenient. Microsoft’s high Vista prices?and intrusive activation procedures, not to mention the?complications for?PC enthusiasts?regarding hardware changes on OEM copies, will no doubt mean a lot of people who normally go legit, simply won’t this time. In my opinion, the OEM pricing of Vista?is fine, but anyone who changes hardware often cannot?take the OEM route and must go retail. Vista retail prices are ludicrous, especially in the UK, and?while i don’t condone piracy,?I wouldn’t blame a sole who changes hardware often for using this crack and sticking two fingers up at Profitsoft.

AMD breaks teraflop barrier

At a press event in San Francisco, AMD showcased a system that broke the teraflop computing barrier – performance which is normally reserved for the supercomputing space. The system was running R600 CrossFire and a single dual-core Opteron capable of performing more than 1 trillion floating-point calculations per second using a general ?multiply-add? (MADD) calculation. ?The technology AMD demonstrated today is just one example of how the ?New? AMD is changing the game for our industry,? said Dave Orton, executive vice president of visual media business at AMD. ?Today, teraflop computing capability is largely reserved for the supercomputing space. But now that ?Teraflop-in-a-Box? is a reality, AMD can deliver an order of magnitude increase in performance.? As of yet R600’s launch date is still not clear, it was recently set back from it’s original launch date of March 15th to at least the second quarter of ’07.
