Well, there you are...MS used pirated software to make the audio for its tours.
I don't have an XP box at the moment to confirm this, but I can bet its true...anyone with WinXP care to give it a try?

Interesting how a little googling for "Deepz0ne" returns links like this one

Looks like others noticed too

There all kinds of them... but the interesting thing is how many are aware of the irony behind all this... M$ with their all their DRM bull, and they pull something like this, yet most people still buy the product (which M$ doesn't want you to crack) that they made using pirated software.

Indeed, this is a shame for MS, and make them to look like idiots, but looks like a bad worker "mistake".
