Windows Vista copy protection cracked?

Techdirt is reporting that the copy protection on Windows Vista has been cracked:

More than a year after Windows Vista was introduced, hackers have finally developed a clean crack of Windows Vista. There have been a variety of workarounds for Vista’s copy protection before now, but this is the first time someone has figured out a way to install a cracked version that would pass all of Microsoft’s various anti-piracy checks.

Surely the really effective copy protection mechanism on Vista is that it is so crap no-one would want to copy it?
