Unauthorized Pocket PC Downloads

Okay, I admit that I may have been a bad boy and downloaded the unauthorized Pocket PC 2002 upgrade…but it’s Compaq’s own fault! They announced that iPAQ’s would be the only Pocket PC’s which would be flashable to the new OS way back in August. They announced they’d have a version of Pocket PC ready for purchase by September. September came and went, as did October…and now we’re hearing early December.

So when I saw a copy of PocketPC 2002 available on a certain file sharing service…I jumped at it. How should I know that it was screwy?

That really sucks.
