Good point. There are many pages which show screenshots of search engines
(not only Google, but even Microsoft's) adding to their contextual
recommendations pages about cracks. As in... search for 'how to crack Vista'
and some sponsored links or suggested alternative SERPs. They will lend you
a hand. The theory that Microsoft tries to encourage piracy and make
workarounds visible to those unwilling to pay is probably exaggeration.
