This crack was needed. I have heard that phase II of the Genuine Advantage program is going to create more "consumer enhancements" for all audio and video streams; depending on your status, random hiss and frame sync errors are to be inserted into the stream in an effort to emulate mainstream DRM offered in proprietary operating systems. As an exciting bonus, a tilt-a-wheel feature is also planned to randomly disable various components to even more accurately emulate the genuine advantage regular customers enjoy. Keep your current ISO disks, it won't take long before downloading a DRM free version of the Linux operating system is against the law.
