Remember that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has given more then $28 billion to charitable causes. He and 69 other billionaires have pledged to give more then 50% of the income to charities.

Philanthropy is commendable. As a pure mind exercise I'm sure I'd be philanthropic if I was incredibly wealthy but I wouldn't price gouge a product I sold.

Mr. Buffett and Mr. Gates have money in places they can't even remember all the places. The best I can tell they earned the money and are very chartable with large sums of it.
I have no problem with the rich getting richer as long as they do in a legal fashion.

I hate to derail my own thread, but what is "illegal" about activating Windows? If it's reinstalled it needs it, so does Photoshop, Corel, Macrium paid......

I with you Gary.
I have no problem having to activate a operating system or programs again if that is what needs to be done.

I have a new motherboard coming (RMA). If I have to reactivate Windows again so be it. It only takes minutes to be legal again.

Gonna explain, activation per se is not a problem you activate and you're done.

What about when you change your video card or motherboard and suddenly the activation online doesn't work any more.
Jesus you must telephone asking for permit to microsoft in order to use the software you already own.

What if the representative ask for your purchase ticket and you don't have it anymore? you are done you can't use the windows you paid for.

First Smiths, Jesus has nothing to do with activation!

Secondly, how do you expect MS or anyone to know you haven't tried to install Windows on a different PC? Generally changing a GPU, CPU, RAM, or sound card won't de-activate you. Many time if one installs the same motherboard model it's also fine, I've done a few dozen times with all the above.

Nothing whatsoever illegal about activation mate. Only if the installation is hacked, keygened, patched, or otherwise illegally activated in the first place should anyone have a problem.
