That's the problem, though: it's not
an evaluation period. Many people think it is, and many people use it as an evaluation period, and this is one of the greatest and most widespread misunderstandings of Windows licensing. But if you look at licensing, it's not
for evaluation. It's a grace
period, to make sure you have the logistics to activate, not
an evaluation period. And that's why it's illegal. As for moral, I think it's fine to use it as an evaluation period: you're not hurting anyone and MSFT won't go after you. It's moral (IMO) and MSFT makes no effort to enforce it, but it's not legal.
