Now that Service Pack 1 is officially available for download from Microsoft, I'm curious about the validity of all the rumors that have been circulating around. Now I realize that it might be too soon to already know what Microsoft has actually done concerning this release, but I figure some answers might be surfacing soon. Here are some of the rumors/opinions that I'd like to see addressed: -->Windows Update will not allow updates to be downloaded on machines with invalid product keys. -->Installation of SP1 on an XP machine with an invalid key will freeze/disable/render Windows useless. -->Installation of SP1 will work fine for 3 days on a machine with an invalid key, then the S.W.A.T. team will show up at your door and force you to eat a pirated copy of WinXP and then purchase a legal version. -->Nothing changes. Microsoft simply tried to scare users into buying legal copies, but won't do anything because they can't even keep up with repairs for current software holes, much less have the resources to effectively fight piracy. Side Note: For the record, I actually own a legit installation of WinXP... I'm sure someone would have brought it up.
