This is still a pain in the ass though. I prefered the days when a simple: 1234 00000000 could be used as the product key for MS products. I really hate all this dial home shit and even if I was going to go out and buy it this would make me think twice. When I can afford to pay for software (after I graduate), I think I’ll probably prefer to pay for Red Hat with support because they’re not trying to force shit lilke product activation down my throat, hardware dependancies (doesn’t that defeat the whole point of the OS), security against mp3’s built into my file system etc. Windows are REALLY pushing their limits with all the shit they’re trying to force people to put up with. If they go too far they’re gonna blow it for themselves.

Yeah, it just took him a little longer than the others. What I don’t get is that M$ actually have connvince peeps to PAY to test their software. The releases coming in the summer actually cost the peeps money to try.
