The Seattle Times: Microsoft: New "key" mandatory in Windows for updates: "The system works by identifying unique characteristics of a system and implanting a software key that can be read by Microsoft when updates are requested. The only way to remove the key is to reformat the hard drive, said David Lazar, director of Genuine Windows.
The key won't be used to identify individual users, only individual systems, he said."
