Microsoft is bringing a new way to identify ans show the systems which contains private copy of Windows XP Professional.

WGA blog says

With this update to WGA Notifications in Windows XP, we’ve implemented a couple of related features that draw on the notifications experience we designed for Windows Vista SP1. After installing this version of WGA Notifications on a copy of Windows XP that fails the validation, most users will discover on their next logon that their desktop has changed to a plain black background from whatever was there previously.

You can change the background to some other wallpapper but it will be reset to this black screen every 60 minutes.

Also, the user will see the addition of what we call the "persistent desktop notification." This notification is similar to a watermark but works a bit differently. The image (see below) appears over the system tray and is non-interactive in the sense that you can't click on it or do anything to it.

If you would like to say anything on this leave comments.

Interesting. I normally use a black background, so are people going to think I'm using a pirated copy now?
