It's been less than a week since Windows 7 was released to manufacturer and already we're seeing reports that Windows 7 RTM Ultimate has been cracked using an OEM product key from computer manufacturer Lenovo (though the crack isn't limited to their hardware).
Download Squad points out that, while Microsoft could potentially sort this out, it seems unlikely, since similar cracks were never plugged
in Vista. It's got to be pretty frustrating being Microsoft at times like this, especially since they've even lowered their prices to attract more people to upgrade in the first place.
