Change a Disk, Get a New License – Windows Vista

http://www.cio.com/blog_view.html?CID=25933

Anyone who knows me knows I cavitch about Microsoft on and on. There really is no reason for us to put up with a lot of the crap MS gets away with. This is one of them. In Vista you can only switch the license once. Have a motherboard that fried on you and you already had to change it out? If you were using vista get ready to shell out another few hundred bucks for a license. This is nuts, especially when you can get an OS like Linux that works more efficiantly, more stabily, and have all the best parts you want, to include games in Cedega.

Please, I ask all of you to take this as Windows saying, “we don’t care about you consumers. You have no choice but to comply,” and tell Queen Gates to kiss out frosty cold ass.
