Deepz0ne, according to urban dictionary....

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?

Hehe, hippocrates!

Interesting how a little googling for "Deepz0ne" returns links like this one
http://www.p2pnet.net/story/2996
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".
