Look at my example, i refuse to upgrade to it just cuz of these activation key. I dont like at all the ideia of having a key based on the hardware of my computer. Its a complete invasion of privacy in my opinion. My computer and the hardware within it is a matter only to me. And the thing made me angriest (is that right? ) is having to change the key for each upgrade. I swore myself that i will never upgrade to XP. If needed ill put linux, or Windows 2000 (that is what i have right now), but not XP at all. (Wish some M$ marketing guy was reading that... )Originally posted by Betamax
Well I wasn't really expecting anything else. Not that I'm condoning it or anything but this whole activation key thing could work in reverse. It has gotten so much bad press that it has had the effect that some ppl are refusing to upgrade and others who might have bought it legitimately obtaining the pirate version instead as they couldn't be bothered with the hassle.
