Even though I develop software on Microsoft's platform, I'm still astounded at some of the stupid things they do. Now they're saying that you can't use your Windows license on a new motherboard when you upgrade.
That's stupid. What moron in Redmond thinks this is OK? Since I bought Windows XP, I've had three motherboards. You know what happened to the old boards? They were banished to my closet, where they still sit. You mean to tell me that the software I paid for is now tied to that hardware?
What a joke.
