frankenbuild
 n.— «Microsoft has issued an update to Windows Vista that’s intended to stop a piracy monster. The software maker said Thursday that the update is aimed at thwarting a technique that was letting some people use pirated versions of the operating system without going through the software’s built-in product activation. Microsoft has dubbed the approach “frankenbuild” because it works by combining test versions of Vista with the final code to create a hybrid version.» —“Microsoft tries to stop Vista piracy monster” by Ina Fried CNET Dec. 14, 2006.
