A local computer repair shop in my town just got hit with this. Microsoft claims they have been giving customers hard drives with Microsoft software preloaded.

Though I like the shop, I really don't know if Microsoft's claims are true or not. Maybe piracy is more widespread among the commercial sector than I thought.

"One of the reasons we believe this announcement is important is it consolidates a lot of our activities in connection with our partnerships with governments, our customers and partners," said Bonnie MacNaughton, Microsoft senior attorney.

My guess is the majority of that 50bill, is NOT games.

I can't help but believe the majority of people who pirate media never intended to buy in the first place.  That seems like an awful lot of money.  I think 10% of that number would be very optimistic at best.
