After numerous readings in other forums and searching the web donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t remember the ULRÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Windows Vista Officially sucks now. Why you ask well instead of activating like you would in XP W2K ectÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ It will be more of you rent it type ordeal. I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t want to believe it, I hate to believe it but I think I might just go and buy a Mac now. I hope there is someone who can say this is wrong and this accusation isnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t true. But after hearing this numerous of times I wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t be running out and getting it. Source one was a dell consultant that talked to a friend of mine and was getting the mobo replaced on a laptop. The support asked my friend if he knew about the new OS and was interested in it he said maybeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦..Why? The support person said youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll never own it youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll be more less renting the OS even if you were to buy a retail DVD of it. Now I for one am good about getting info but really feel for the new guy that might not know and get sucked into this. I thought it was a lie and only dealt with windows media player. But it sounds like it is the whole OS. So I want a real answer on this from MS if I had their email and knew they would respond truthfully I would gladly email them. Mike I have respect for everyone but felt I needed to voice this concern (rumor) too. I am very concern over their new tactics.
