There have been several posts and articles about complaints from Chinese computer users to Microsoft regarding a recent system update for Windows. The update automatically changes the background to display a notice reminding users of pirated copies of Windows to purchase legal versions. If the background has been changed the system will change it back after an hour.
I’ve spent a considerable amount of time thinking about what I wanted to post here and I think I’ve finally managed to consolidate my opinion regarding this matter, which I will detail below.

Updated 12/10/2012: Some folks may have missed the obvious point here so I’ll spell it out. These people are complaining about their pirated software. They are upset that the software they (probably) acquired illegally reminds them to purchase a valid license. It’s silly and they are fortunate that the software only changes the background instead of shutting down.
