That seems kinda weird. Normally all those kind of installs would never be past 30 days (especially not past 120) so stealing beta chances from other end users to activate machines that don't need to be activated is shady in my opinion.

Oh ... not to mention you supposedly can use 1 key on several machines!

Only if your going to at least 6GB and probably not enough to make it worth it.

Too bad right now you can't create Windows Live ID's ... that system is down, probably because so many people are finding out they have to have one (or are trying to make extras to steal all the keys)

Yup, other Microsoft services (like Windows Live) are failing now too.

Why not keep trying? It works fine. And there is already an activation crack, has been for days. But those kind of things always screw up the OS (not to mention we can't talk about them here).

Um, you should see that a lot, just keep refreshing. Make sure you signed in with your windows live ID first too.
