Honesty & Integrity Above All!

I believe that the developer/manufacturer of a product...or a provider of services...certainly has the right to sell/license such product or service...as he/she likes to.
Apple has a right to sell their computers for what I think are overpriced values.
Prospective buyers like us...make the same decision in regard to such instances...as we do when we drop into a local bakery. If we don't like the terms of sale governing said product or service...then you should not buy or unnecessarily denigrate the value of the property/service which you covet to use for your own "very special" usage.
It's not the same as pulling up to the pump...to fill your vehicle. No one needs to use Windows today, it's a choice.
Every purchase I've ever made, I did willingly and with a full understanding of what was transpiring.
Users of Windows...need to stop posturing...as if they have god-given rights...to use products/services which are the fruit os someone else's brains and labor.

Just heard about this on the radio, KB971033 will be coming soon. http://lauren.vortex.com/ has more on this. From my understanding M/S will with this KB the ability to monitor your legal copy of W7. This in it's self is what is done when you buy and install W7 and other other operating systems. With KB971033 they will be able to monitor your system with W7 for ever and if M/S decides later down the road that they don't like your legal system it can be shut down. What do you all think about this. I'm legal now, bought and paid for from my local Intel store. What about a year from now? I understand that a company doesn't want there product pirated but if it's legal now why would not be legal 6 mouths from now?

In addition to your suggestion, they could be gearing up to having subscriptions - you get your 90 days and they can nuke your system if you don't pay the next instalment.
It DOES make one wonder what commercial software vendors are up to.
