    I once made took a screenshot of a friends Windows desktop and made it their wallpaper. They clicked around for a while thinking their computer had frozen up.
    Also a picture of actual desktop and icons hidden, frozen pointer was just hilarious.

    Was just going to post that one. Eventually most would ctrl alt delete, reboot, wtf? wash rinse repeat. The giggling in the other room would eventually tip them off that something was up.

    There was also an Atari screen saver that shoved desktop slowly melting and leaking down, when placed on someone's computer produced some amazingly concerned faces followed by fast plug pulling motion.

Nobody checks home use and MS is not too interested either and is also helping a lot, all schools for instance got free windows and so did lower grades students. There's a lot of volume licenses for students and local MS office gave away hundreds of W7 licenses when it came out.
    Don't know now but few years ago Bulgaria supplied something like 70% of bootlegged SW in the world. Than China took over.
    I got my W7 free from local MS office (it's regional MS center in Belgrade, did some work for them ) and upgraded to W8 with that ultra cheap offer at the beginning. Now going to free W10 and will have super legal W10 for 14 bucks I think that upgrade was. There's no way I could afford 200 bucks for windows now, would rather keep Linux.
    Many here took advantage of insider preview and will keep on using it. There may be more of legal windows than I counted on because second hand computers coming from Germany and Austria are sold here or 50% of people could not afford computer at all. 400 Euro is average salary here.
    In some of those areas I dare say you'd be looked at with distrust if you actually had legally activated software.

    I have been looked at with suspicion for being a closet millionaire, if there was IRS here I would be audited for sure.

    There also was an animated BSOD screen saver for Windows. Our IT guy wasn't very pleased when I installed it on a work computer. I think I lost 3 ataboys that day.

    In ZX81 days, every store was running:
    10 print "Mike"
    20 goto 10.
    Endlessly rolling screen with Mike on it.

    @alphanumeric

    You know where I could get that screen saver? Does it work for both 7 & 10?

    There was also a pac-man like creature that ate the screen bit by bit. I got caught by that one a long, long, long time ago.

    That was in the days of Windows NT 4. I have no idea what it was called or where to look for it.
