It is very nice to be among smart men like you.
I noticed you talk alot about the Activation problem in Win XP
I wonder why you bother yourselves and run after M$ evilish tricks
Simply you can switch to linux
You know Linux is the coming system of the future,FREE,STAAAAABLE,SECURE.....
I can go on and tell you many features that you can not find in M$ products.
The switch is simple
Just give it a try
And don't worry,you needn't lose your windows
You can run both together
In case you feel Linux is enough,put windows in the recycle bin
Wait to know your opinion
