  2. Which is available from the Microsoft site.

    Here's another analysis:
    Some draconian restrictions on what kinds of benchmarking you're allowed to
    perform; prohibitions on performing DRM-controlled functions when running
    under virtualization; and confirmation of the limitations on licence

    And the scary part is; 99% of users won't read the eula, and if they
    did, either would not understand the implications, or not care, as the
    only time they upgrade their computers is when a new version of windows
    comes out. No matter how much commentators point it out, they will
    ignore it until it affects them personally, like if they upgrade their
    pc twice more before the next version of windows comes out.

    I wonder that they haven't yet added a clause to prevent
    educators/tutors etc. from discussing the eula in class, or sue an
    editor or blogger for raising questions about it.

    I've never been a Microsoft basher, but it is impossible for me to
    retain any form of neutrality over this.


    Considering the current sad state of our computer programs,
    software development is clearly still a black art, and cannot yet be
    called an engineering discipline. (Bill Clinton)
