Office 2007 Also Has Kill Switch
Apparently Microsoft is putting the same kind of kill switch into Office 2007 that is reportedly being used by Vista. The kill switch limits the programs functionality once activation has been bypassed a certain number of times.
But now Microsofts intentions are clear: Just as it is doing with Vista, Microsoft plans to incorporate what basically amounts to a kill switch into Office 2007. Office 2007 users who cant or wont pass activation muster within a set time period will be moved into reduced-functionality mode, according to Microsofts Knowledge Base article.
