Post subject:  Microsoft to Fix workaround for vista

What Microsoft calls the frankenbuild aka the first workaround which is what most of you are running, is going to be patched so that that edition will not be marked as genuine and so that it will go into reduced functionality mode :D. The KMS workaround will be fixed in a later update to the wga software.

They will just block the Beta keys at some stage, so that they no longer pass WGA or activate. This was always a very bad workaround to use long-term, as we knew they'd block those keys after the beta was finished, and it puts a timebomb on anyway.

The update that kills this workaround has apparently dropped: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929391

Wonder if they have/will fix the clock-trick workaround too?
