That old argument.
IT IS STILL DEBATEABLE as Win 2000 pro was SOLD - not leased and EU law
differs from the US interpretation

I'm afraid you are very mistaken. It was LICENSED for one machine NOT sold.
The COA might not even work on another machine.
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWNNNNN.

Tom,
This is the same guy who suggested a user install "the Windows software that
allows entering the BIOS." We're not talking about the sharpest pencil in
the box here.

I do not know about the sharpest pencil in the box, but.....

Top Posting is very annoying, and what ever you say, it is against
Usenet custom, makes a thread very difficult to follow and just plain
bad manners.

A thread where everyone has top posted is difficult to read because it
is out of chronological sequence; I have to read your reply before I can
read what the hell you are writing about. Or are your comments much
more important than your those to which you are responding?

A thread where most people have followed custom and bottom posted and
just a few know-alls have top posted, is impossible to follow. It is
like the American style of writing dates or the thread above, impossible
to follow.

I make no comment about the legality and enforceability of Licences that
restrict the running of software to only one machine. I am not
qualified, and as far as I know it is not totally determined, yet.

However, American law does not take precedence over EU and national law
in EU countries. A Licence written in America may say one thing and has
a given meaning in America, if it is sold in the UK, for instance, it
may have a different meaning in the UK and some provisions may not be
enforceable. In fact I, as the Licensee may have the right to force the
Licenser, in law, to do something different (Unfair provisions). This
is why Microsoft are in negotiation with the EU about their licences.
The consequences of those negotiations may not be entirely in favour of
Microsoft or the consumer.

What a well written and full response. Whilst I'm sure it was not for my
benefit, I appreciate the support and time taken.
I have read very similar on regular occasions and if 'Tom' the self
proclaimed knowitall had bothered any sort of research he would have reached
the same conclusion.
I did not have the patience to post such as response in the circumstances as
I was being abused!
Now that your post has revealed that imbecile HH's response I am justfurther
exasperated having read his response to my post on the BIOS.
Seeing as Compaq produce a windows BIOS interface that actually prevents F10
BIOS access upon boot-up I thought it may be useful (it works on my EVO
N800W anyway) - but there you go; I guess he knows better than this
practitioner - I must be a 'blunt' pencil.
I guess I must be a guy too (presumption)

So in other words, you're not posting the EULA for fear you will be proven
wrong and you're diverting attention to a non-issue that was established as
a recommendation and nothing more in the early days of the internet prior to
broadband.

I still maintain you're a pompous ass

My newsreader faciliates top posting, so other people will have to live with it.
At least it's not as bad as posting in HTML !!! ... Ben Myers
