MICROSOFT RIPPED US OFF ON THE THUMB DRIVE!

Postby bob » 05/26/06, 6:57 pm

RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING EMAIL FROM MS:

Some things will always be a mystery.

Windows licensing doesn't have to be.


Thank you for your interest in the Mystery Solved Windows(R)
licensing promotion. We've received your request for more
information to help clarify Microsoft(R) Windows Desktop Licensing
pre-loaded on the USB drive. Unfortunately, this Mystery Solved
promotion was available in the U.S. only and while supplies last.
Supply is depleted at this time, so we encourage you to please
utilize the online alternative today.

Simply download* the Windows Desktop Licensing reference files
directly at:

http://r.email.microsoft.com/r/r?1.1.Gb ... ysO.3P31Bc

To help simplify Windows Desktop Licensing, keep these points
in mind:

1)There are two legal ways to acquire a full Windows Desktop
license: through your hardware vendor (OEM/System Builder) or
Full Packaged Product.

2)Volume licensing covers Windows Desktop operating system
upgrades only.

3)OEM operating system licenses live and die with each PC-they
are not transferable.

Again, thank you for your interest in Mystery Solved and for
helping us spread the word about proper Windows licensing.

Sincerely,
Microsoft Corporation

You should have known something was up when they didn't specify how much memory it had.... ohhh and it's MS.
I answer rhetorical questions for my own enjoyment.
