What is totally mental, and I mean running around the supermarket without your pants on shouting “where is the mustard” mad, would be to start shutting down the user PC every two hours until they upgrade to a paid for OS and to start this nutball feature THREE MONTHS before the thing actually expires.
Yet that is exactly what some loon at Microsoft thought would be a good idea, and that’s what is going to happen. Starting March 1st 2010 your PC will shut down every two hours.
Yeah, Microsoft has developed a serious attitude problem. Not that I was looking at W7 after my experience with VISTA, but this is simply loony!
Plus, once you have installed W7, Microsoft could decide to increase the price of the permanent activation.
When my XP machines start to go bye bye, new hardware will be LINUX based. Enough of this American Corporate Arrogance!
