Ed Bott compares the changes with historical usage. Seems like a pretty big change to me.
New It's hard to care about Windows licencing.
After all, you're going to get screwed.

It's just a matter of degree.

And, in the final analysis, the number of people who actually care will be statistically insignificant, because OOH SHINY I LIKE THE SHINY.

New Seriously, what percentage of Vista users will care?
We all know that whatever the question is, Windows is unlikely to be the best possible answer; and yet, Windows is everywhere, like bad commercial R'n'B.

New The percentage may increase
M$ is cranking up their WGA program and sueing people based on it. It probably won't be a problem for most of the regulars on this board, but who knows how picky M$ will get? Consumer rights, fair use, and such are going by the wayside each and every day. As you say, it's not a real big deal just now, but it probably should be noted.
New The harder the grasp...
the more is lost.
