That's what I was talking about. How could no one at Microsoft catch this?

Actually, 2600 had to do with phone phreaking before hacking. Check out these links:

From what I have read, naming the final build "2600" was done on purpose. Microsoft believes it's product activation scheme is on that hackers and warez supporters will not be able to break. We'll see...........

There is no need to break it. MS's problem is in its very success. They will always need to have corporate editions that don't require activation for customers with thousands of licenses. Those corp editions will leak out, as XP did less than a week after is was RTM.
