You are of course correct, however, as an administrator of a site which had in excess of 13,000 members ( Samurize.com ) you have absolutely no idea of how much work it is to stay on top of everything that gets posted in a forum. Instead of being an arm chair quarterback, try being supportive of the SF staff instead...

rant was necessary...Tews you can understand from personal experience. Remember that John runs Vistax64, sevenforums, thechromeosforums, and theeightforums. I don't really know how he does it all and lives a relatively normal life

Officially, MS says no, however I have heard that there are ways to do it... that being said, it is always advisable to do a clean install IMHO ...

Wow, what a talking point (albiet a diversion into copyright). Microsoft should really be proud of their creation and paid well for it.

I for one agree, that this is an OS I am willing to pay for (I bought Linux Boxed editions in the past - before we had high download speeds). All my other Windows OS's came with the computer(s).

It improves old hardware and it will run brilliantly on my home computer. A core i7 6GB (upgrading to 12 GB) rig with HD4870 and 10,000 rpm HDD.

I'll be curious to know how it runs in a Pentium M 1.6 Ghz (1.5 GB) with ATI Mobile 9000 graphic Laptop (T41)

I'm not so sure we shouldn't allow discussions about cracks and or alternative ways to to achieve end results.

Before we get into the whole stealing vs copyright infringement argument as you really are not stealing anything. I think this more of a moral decision. This site and no one else can or should make a moral decision for you.

There are legitimate reasons why people do things. I can't go into all of them but situation arise.

So to the point I think cracks and other methods or circumvention should be allowed to be discussed. I do not think we should post links or PM with said applications on this site.
People can use Google and make that moral decision.

The integrity of the information presented at SF demands that no such discussion is tolerated. The just or unjust cause of such practices is one discussion, the methods and details of how is another.

I teach my Number One about earning profit. I do not show him how to stuff paper up the coin return.
