We have removed two things recently due to DMCA complaints.
The first item in question is Office 2000. We still offer Office 97 which frankly, is just as equivalent in functionality as Office 2000.
The second item was the serials page. The DMCA in question listed "Microsoft Windows" and while that's very vague, I don't feel this place and what you all get for free is worth setting myself up for legal liability by filing a counter notice. We will eventually return the serials page once it's been cleaned up and contains abandonware and beta serials only. DO NOT ASK FOR WINDOWS XP, WINDOWS XP SERIALS, OR SERIALS FOR CURRENTLY SOLD/NON-ABANDONWARE PRODUCTS. The old thread was chock full of Windows XP related inquiries and the devils own serial, among others, which is more than likely the reason for the DMCA as the thread was fine before moron kids involved XP.
ONCE AGAIN, WE WILL NOT BE OFFERING WINDOWS XP!
Windows XP needs to become truly abandonware before we can offer it. Despite the support ending in less than a month, it's still used by some ~30% of systems in the world. A product is not abandoned when it's used by 30% of the systems in the world! If you can not comprehend this, you will be shown the door. It will be several years further, if at all, before we offer XP. Offering XP right now would just give folks another reason to not update to more modern software. Windows XP is going to become a huge security risk in a month due to it's high usage as it is, and from an Internet engineering standpoint, we're looking at a giant zombie botnet in the making unless people start upgrading. We at WinWorld do not want to promote the usage of XP for your general day-to-day usage due to this.
Since we have a fair amount of kids who chose to ignore our posting guidelines and will probably ignore this announcement, I will be restricting guest posting in ways in the coming few days.
