A sneaky change in Windows licensing terms by ZDNet's Ed Bott -- Microsoft just released the licensing agreements for Windows Vista, and I read them carefully. Buried in the fine print is a dramatic change in licensing terms from the Windows XP versions. Think you can transfer a retail Windows license to any machine you want? Think again.

Yet again, does this surprise anyone? To be honest with you, I always thought that was the case with Windows. Doesn't mean that I didn't move copies to new machines as I got them. I say "good job" to Microsoft. Keep driving your product into the ground. Just makes me interested to see who is coming next to knock them down.
