Microsoft has expanded its latest WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) initiative to China. The programme they are using turns the screen of computers running pirated Windows black every hour. Unsurprisingly, since a large number of Chinese computer users run unauthorized copies of Windows, they're fairly upset.
My favourtie quote in response to Microsoft's actions is from Dong Zhengwei, a lawyer from Beijing. Mr Zhengwei describes Microsoft as "biggest hackers in China". Big call.
For a change, I'm siding with Microsoft on this one.
