Well, I never got excited, so I can't calm down.....but this doesn't make me happy either....I am not a fan of the hoops I have to jump through for XP, so the fact that Vista continues this garbage is not good news to me.
If I pay for the software, and I have the ability to change my hardware around as I see fit, I see no reason to call Microsoft and ask them to pretty please turn my computer back on.
Activation hasn't stopped piracy of XP, and it's not going to stop piracy of Vista.......all it does is annoy the people who actually pay for the poorly coded garbage they call an OS.
Oh well, I wasn't buying Vista before anyway, so not like they "lost" a sale.....I have seen no benefit offered to prove it is needed. I don't care about AERO, DX10 is not vital to my life, and the "better" security has already been hacked several times........
