Aside from the obvious comments about Windows products, I have one question/comment that I am wondering if anyone can answer. Microsoft claims that they lose crazy amounts of money through piracy, I completely agree that they do since I copy half their products, but this begs one question (I know, it begs more, but): If their new serial number registration is supposed to reduce/eliminate the pirating of the XP, how can they justify the cost of the new OS ($199 new, $99 upgrade)? Shouldn't they be charging $50 for the thing since you won't be able to pirate it? Just curious to see what others think. I think that it will stop me from purchase it. That and the fact that I will have 2 systems to install it on and they are smoking crack if they think that I will shell out $400 for shit software. Looks like I will just reinstall my wonderful Windows 98 2nd edition on both!
