Wait…what? Microsoft CEO Jeff Raikes made a plea at the recent tech conference at Morgan Stanley asking those who are going to counterfeit software products to consider Microsoft products in their endeavors. The aim of the CEO is not to break Microsoft even though this seems like an open invite to hackers and pirates. The intent is to expose¬†Microsoft¬†products to as many people as possible and eventually convert those people to purchase a license. ¬†A clever rouse but if you are thinking of pirating a Microsoft product note that they spend MILLIONS to hunt down and catch pirates year after year.
