[taken from the article linked below:] "Well, swell. But if it is indeed Microsoft's intent to continue giving users the right to decline downloads, why has the company written its XP agreements to force users to explicitly surrender that right? Are customers supposed to ignore what the licenses say and just hope Microsoft won't ever do what the terms say it can do? That's not a concept that will make anyone other than Bill Gates feel very secure." http://www.infoworld.com/article/02/02/08/020211opfoster_1.html [taken from Nipsy, MacRumors member]: ...enjoy mucking about your BIOS, recovering from worms, and signing the deed of your house over to M$ (line 16487 of the Windows XP EULA). If anyone can clarify what this means [I'm actually wondering whether Nipsy meant it literally, as I wouldn't put anything past M$] it would be greatly appreciated.
