MessageSo give me my money back...! Give me my $100 or what ever it was and I will immediately remove this garbage from my computer..Even faster than that... I did not buy a lic...I bought a product to use as I see fit...So I thought. it was not mentioned that it was a lic. until I opened it and then buried under all that jargon is the rules and conditions that MS set up...out of greed!... I have never ever read any agreement form on any piece of software..I only take it that it says that because of what others have said.. I personally don't know of anyone who actually has read it and even fewer who would agree with it.. I will give you one point though...They made it and it is their right to set the rules..it is my right to agree or disagree...but the fair trade act and the truth and lending laws say that they must clearly up front tell me, and what they adv. must be accurate and truthful. So far they have not met any of these conditions..! It is legalese..why..because they don't want you to read it and understand it and I doubt seriously that it would stand up in court anywhere... Why don't they put that stuff in large letters right on the front of the package so we can all see it and understand it? Why is it only discovered after you have it opened and started to load it..and then when you hit " disagree " It stops..Forced agreement at best...! I tried once to bring it back and said I don't agree with any of this... Didn't get my money back...I was stuck...So I used it till I can get out from under it..! Ms was not up front with me when I purchased this junk, find it kind of misgiving for them now to try and make a thief out of us ( their are millions of us ) when every other week they are in court for that very thing .They are the ones being less than opened and honest with their busn dealings. Their aint one of you who would buy a toaster for the kitchen and then the dining room..No one would buy a car to use in this town only and another for that town..dumb..just plain dumb! Who would buy a music tape and then another for the car and another for this room and another for that room...When I rent a video...do I now got to go out and rent another one to play on the other TV...Doesn't make any sense to me.. only makes Cents to those who are greedy and dumb enough to fall for it..Not me ! GIVE ME MY $ back...and I would be only to happy to dump this MS forever..till then I bought it I paid for it it's mine and I will do whatever I want with it..! I emphasize whatever!

That is piracy. Same with running a copy of XP on more than one computer, the license which you bought along with the CD is for one computer only. Breaking the license is breaking the law and yet again piracy. If you don't agree , then change the law but don't break it. It is like buying a book - the book is yours to do with as you wish - except for copying the contents and passing the content off as yours - that is plagiarisation. Same with a computer operating system or program, you can do with the legal CD whatever you want - you cannot copy it and pass it on as yours. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TTFN – Vic "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---- From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of trapper Sent: Friday, 28 February, 2003 02:35 To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Not everyone agrees with my philosophy..been called everything because of it..but I firmly believe that if I paid for it..it's mine and I can do whatever I want with it..that includes throwing it in the dumpster..making a chime out of it or giving it away..I wont sell it for profit...but will sure give it as a birthday gift, or allow someone to borrow it..Just like I would a movie cd or a tape. I know many don't agree and MS would come unglued...But they have a long way to go to try and make a thief out of me because I don't and will not go out and buy another one to use on my computer in the other room..not anymore than I would go out and buy another tape of my favorite song to play on the car stereo..
