I don’t really see the point in moving this thread. Closing it, however, is an option that is becoming more and more attractive.
The Newbie area is not the appropriate area for chatting about software. If you had a question on activation procedures, or if you wanted help of some sort, I see no problem with answering you here.
I simply see no purpose to the thread other than a way of displaying your dissatisfaction with some of Microsoft’s procedures. If there is a point beyond that please fill us in. Otherwise I’ll close it.
