Vista's policy

Anyone hear the news on Vista allowing for one "major upgrade" before having to purchase another license for future overhauls after the first one? Makes you wonder on how MS will sell it as a viable gaming platform as they have been doing for some time.

I thought that turned out to be a myth and that the real limit is closer to 10? But I'm not sure if I'm remembering that correctly so don't quote me on it.

I knew I read somewhere that it was a myth.

"And instead of the single license transfer stipulation that we'd heard before, Redmond has now gone on record saying that you can re-install Vista up to 10 times without penalty -- and possibly more, though that will apparently be decided on a case-by-case basis."


"We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet.  A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
