Question Only 244 Vista sold in China the first fortnight of Vista release!

Microsoft spent millions of dollars advertising its next generation OS Windows Vista in China, in fact the IT juggernaut threw up the biggest Vista Ad on the 421 meter high Jin Mao tower in Shanghai China. However after 2 weeks Jan 19 to Feb 2 from launch Microsoft managed to sell a mere 244 copies of Windows Vista. Software piracy is rampant in the middle kingdom and a pirated version of Vista sells for a mere $1 on the streets. The following numbers are quoted by Windows Vista chief distributor in Bejing.

What a hilarious wrapping! It is a theme relative to vista as you can see.
They spelled Ultimate as Ulimate, what the...?

Lol, could it be a copy because of the typo and the odd (to say the least) wrapper it reminds me of the copy's of films and so on you can get in china town in Liverpool city centre, they print of a standard size DVD case insert and then put it in a little plastic bag drop the disk in and then seal it up. I have seen some App's and stuff for sale recently and where the bar code normally is they replace it with a blank white box and put a CD key there.
