    No, you can file it away for safekeeping. The sticker only really matters if you intend to sell the machine with Windows still installed on it.

    If you buy an OEM version of Windows, you're supposed to affix the sticker to the computer. But I will NEVER do that. I just stick it on the front of the little Windows manual.

    I don't condone software piracy, but any EULA that forces me to put a sticker on my computer can go suck it, selling it or not.

    I did, on the 'top' of the battery compartment. Not because MS told me to but I can turn around and lose just about anything. ;)

    Inside the battery compartment seems to be the logical place for this, and on iMacs, you can put it on the bottom of the stand...

    I don't get the chance to put the sticker thingy's on my computers, because I prefer to get free pirated versions.

    Just kidding, I don't even use windoze, or anything spawn out of MS. I don't make use of the devils equipment:D

    And on another note. I cannot recall ever buying Window$ in my life. And I am a very recent switcher :D
    Have always refused to pay for an inferior product from a monopolist.

    I'm assuming that you've only ever used Linux then? Surely someone with such high moral standards would never steal, whether or not he is stealing from a "monopolist".

    Well actually for the last 3 years yes. But got tired of it, too much work to maintain.

    Rage against that machine. :rolleyes:

    It is easier to buy a license just so you don't have to deal with the WGA B.S.
