  1. Hadn’t heard about this
    At least I hadn’t seen any postings at the mainstream news websites that I check on this. Sounds like Microsoft is taking the “rent” business model to heart. This should give them the idea that, 6 months after they pull XP from the shelves, they stop issuing new registrations to XP re-installs… Forcing the customers to upgrade to Vista.

    Oops, did I just give them the idea?
