Microsoft now protects downloads with Windows Genuine Advantage

Check out this article from Windows IT Pro. It gives a good introduction to the Windows Genuine Advantage program and a link to the Microsoft website that explains it. Briefly, all downloads from Microsoft, including Windows updates (but not including security updates, from what I hear) will require this. The good news: you don’t need to enter your 25-character product key. This is supposedly the way of the future!
