More bad news for Microsoft

The news is out that Microsoft's Windows Genuine Advantage phones home, even when the program is aborted. It is reported the Windows contacts Microsoft and sends registry information, cookie, and language even if you terminate before the installation. Even my tech-illiterate father can see that Microsoft has become too focused on piracy that it forgot about actual customers.

Not only is Microsoft's pushy ways annoying, but it also hurts the environment. Linux computers have a lifespan twice that of Windows. How can you possibly deny a computer that Lasts twice as long. Also, HP is trying to get a hold of Dell's customers by offering Linux on their computers.
