MS is entitled to get payed for services provided (eg provision of OS) However they should NOT be entitled to insist that a user has to use their product in a certain way (eg activate). I pay for my software and want to use it unrestricted after taking it out of the box. As long as I do not do anything illegal (eg pitate) why do I have to do anything else but use the system. Asked me once a month to put a valid CD in the drive or something that does NOT involve any further dealing with MS. I can live with this. But why do I have to connect to MS?
