I have Two PCs and a laptop, so if they charge say $300 for the OP I can put it onto
each machine because MS says you can install it on 3 machines, so that will work out at a hundred dollars a machine which isn't to bad, now for all the people that only have one machine, buy an OEM version and install it on the machine, if you ever have any problems you have always got this site to give you excellent help if needed , and you can install it, and uninstall it, as many times as you like, on that same. machine.
But if you are one of those people that get a new Motherboard every couple of weeks ,then obviously I am not including you in this , because you need to buy the retail package ,sorry.

I'm pretty sure individual licenses with limits of three machines does not mean you can have the license(s) active concurrently.

So if it means that if my machine crashs that I can install it on a new machine up to three times, well then I am sure that you can buy a licence for having more than one machine in the house , which is very common these days, so I will buy one of those licenses.

They have an effective monopoly in the PC market. There's no debate on that. Until software and hardware manufacturers and forced to release their wares with native linux (or other OS) compatibility, then most consumers have little choice. Why do think that after decades of IBM-compatible PCs being around the only opposition to Windows is open-source? It's because competition is impossible, which is the very definition of a monopoly.

Why should companies be forced (and by who?) to develop programs in a certain manner?
