  1. Corporate Edition does not have the validation piece. Only serial number
  2. The validation has already been hacked and not even valid anymore, even though it will still prevent 90% of the population.

I don't see why they spend so much money on validation when it will just be cracked. It just ups the price of the product for everyone.

Remember!!!!
XP can only be used on ONE machine. It takes a branding and authorization code from M$$$ to activate it. If by chance you get around the activation code it will be checked when you go to the internet and against a master table that M$$$ has. If it is an unauthorized "copy" then you are breaking the law and on your own. M$$$ can then prosecute if they desire. We have a 10 machine development license and each machine has to have a different authorization code from M$$$$. The machine branding is dependent upon the hardware making up the machine.
