    Is this a nice way of saying that they will spy on their paying customers?

    Counterfeiting Vista?? Just speaking for my locale, according to our local computer shop a huge number of people have dumped it and gone back to XP. The tech there has made good money removing Vista and reinstalling XP.

    Since Vista appeared, he says his day is evenly divided repairing computers and removing Vista from new boxes people bring in.
