Copy protection on Whistler easily cracked

Whistler's copy protection is by no means uncrackable, according to 
various of The Register's shady sources. The hardware-locked key 
system currently shipping with the Whistler beta seems to be fairly 
easy to get around, and the inconvenience of the system - if it ships 
with the production Whistler - will be likely to encourage the 
widespread use of cracks, and even of doctored installation disks 
that are entirely unlocked.
