I also co-own a tech site; my "tech_site bla bla .com!" partner has responsibility in running and moderating that site here is what he said
I took part in a deployment web seminar the other day. It didn't come up. In fact there are tools for sys builders to reseal the activation so that the end user gets the full activation window.
The ReleaseCandidate2 is in download now, for the builders to start testing their image files. If it's packin', it should be pretty easy to verify.
But SP1 went a long way to curtail the open corprate keys that were out there, and about the time LongHorn launches M$ is hoping the CPU manufacturers will include code to kill the instruction sets for wonky software, so a self disabling SP2 would be a natural step, between the two.
Sounds like someone's trying to get a little rise with the word Trojan. I'm not sure that appplies here
