Default OEM versus Upgrade

just because someone has criticisms on liscensing does not imply they are
not obiding by them. That is what you call dichotimized political skewing.
Good political strategy, 'oh person G is complaining about privacy
rights? He must be a criminal or doing something wrong. This implies that
only the criminal wants privacy. So therefore, people are afraid to want
privacy because they unknowingly pick up the implication of oh if i am for
privacy that is going to lead people to think i am a criminal. This is
brilliant political strategy.

It doesn't work that way - you used the License and that's the way it
works, once used it's not good for anyone/thing else.


And you don't consider that to be a rip off scam, you, who are
soooooooooo

Alias, I didn't comment on anything except the Licensing issue. My

That is what they are doing i believe, planned legal war. Set up things
that are so easily violated you can own them in court. I am really getting
interested in this topic because it allows one to see how narrow the
definition of a computer can actually become through these legal claims.
Oracle on that site, wants to give liscences or actually does i am not sure,
but, i did not miss the point they want to liscence per core that is in the
single processor! I have always defined a computer as a whole, but, i have
always thought the motherboard should be used to liscence. Because that
would be the fair root. So therefore you could change the cpu and change
hardrives and so forth. I mean, everything plugs into the motherboard
including the cpu to work right?
Well, in psychology, i am a holistic thinker or follower, as
Gestalt would state as well as Adler, YOU CANNOT SEPARATE A PIECE OR SMALL
ENTITY FROM THE WHOLE!!!!!! That is what they are doing when they liscence
per cpu, they are taking a piece of the computer and calling it the whole
which disregards the other parts. Naturally, a computer wont work without
the cpu, but it equally wont work without the motherboard or for the
powersupply. Ram well, it would work if it only used cache memory right?

There you go again, assuming the unsubstatiated licensing *CLAIMS* of MS,
or one of its employees, are actually factual!

Let's take SCO and IBM. SCO *CLAIMS* that IBM has violated the UNIX
license. Has IBM actually violated the license just because SCO *CLAIMS*
IBM violated the UNIX license? And if that is the case, then why bother
having the trial at all?

Let's see you avoid answering these questions yet again, Lamethos!

As Socrates would state, you need to define 'computer' what makes the
computer, is it the cpu by itself?

The RTM pre-SP1 version of OEM XP reads that way. MS changed it to
COMPUTER for SP1, because of all the sh*t it got in their public
newsgroups. And I was one of the most prolific sh*t-throwers!

Now, the way OEM XP SP1 and later EULAs read, it denies the reality terms
of sale for those that buy generic OEM XP with a hardware component.

The idiots at MS Legal should be fired, as the EULA asks people to agree
to terms post-sale, that are in direct contradiction with the actual terms
of the sale at the time of the sale.

Even a business would stand a good chance of winning, if MS ever tried to
enforce their OEM 1st install Computer Only term by pursuing it in court,
that is if that business could afford the time and money to fight MS!

Hi guys
If i buy a microsoft OEM version of XP Home ,can i transfer it from
one pc
to another like i would be able to do with a upgrade copy.
I want to install xp on my daughters pc now but in the near future she
wants
to build a new pc.
So can we transfer the oem copy to the new home built pc.She has home
built
pc now,wants a bigger one.
Thanks

I might be wrong but I believe the official view is no. Once an OEM
copy has
been activated on one PC you can't reactivate it on another.

However I believe you get 30 days to activate an installation so you
could
always install it for 30 days and then move it to another PC. Just
don't
activate it by accident when if prompts you.

I guess that is the wave of capitalism. Immigrants came to America because
of capitalism in Europe and now the wave is going to happen again in a
different sort of fashion. I think, it should be constitutional that
companies should disclose their financial balances to the public. Not only
discretely but publish them so the customer gets a real view of how much
they are actually suffering. How much money they save via their offshoring.
This of course is sort of relevent, but i can connect it, one of the major
freedoms in democracy is the freedom of information, yet it has been almost
stamped out. The good information America needs to know, is, how much
companies are saving in dollars by exporting jobs, and how much americans
are losing as a result of this. Why do people think so many people own
Dells? I give one figure, i do not know anybody who has bought their Dell
all at once. I know a lot of people with Dells and none of them bought it
at once. They all have financed their Dells. Look back in history folks,
companies will milk your jobs away and have you living check to check so
their interest rates will grow. People in Europe back in the day were in
debt. Communism came into action via poverty and debt. The people were so
in debt to their landlords they were never going to get out, so what the
hell if a different regime came in and said, we will kick the landlords off
your land and they wont be able to vote! That is why the middle class is
vital for stability. It will go down and down but to a point, something
always breaks. the disappearance of the middle class will be that what the
corporations really need to fear.
Hitler came to power in the times during the reparations. It was a big
pull in the bolshevik revolution that overtook and killed the Czars. It is
all about the monopolisticness that gets people on edge. The Russian czar
was related to the english monarch and germans! Competition is vital, when
corporations consolidate it may be good in the short term but it is going to
suck in the long one. If Micrsoft had REAL competition, not just 5% it
would be a different story. they can do what they please because there is
not really anything much else out there. These liscence schemes are not
going to get any better, but they are going to get worse.
the ole, trickle down illusion oh sorrry theory. Just doesnt work.
give corporations tax breaks and they will offshore their employment.

I never mentioned anyone not being able to buy academic licenses.
I only answered the part about non profit as that seems to be the area the
question was focused on.
Of course we do academic licensing
I would have assumed you could have found yourself the entire sections on
Academic licensing for indiviuals and larger bodies.

already had conversations on this subject before. There was no
assumptions on either of our parts.


"My personal "Opinion" of what should be fair and not doesn't enter into
a
factual discussion."

That it was a "factual discussion" was more than an assumption on your
part, and that is based on my prior experience with was really is just
YOUR PERSONAL OPINION, that is NOT BASED ON FACT. Your whole argument
is based on the CLAIMS of the Licensor. The licensor is not a legal or
moral arbiter of its licensing CLAIMS. The license isn't a law unto
itself anymore than the licensor is the judge of how their licensing
terms are legally compiled with out not.

That's why SCO has to sue IBM and win before IBM has been proven to
violated the UNIX license. That's one of the reasons we have civil
courts, to settle disputes between parties. IBM didn't have to sue SCO
to do what they did, because as far as they were concerned they never
felt they did anything wrong. It is up to the Licensor, SCO, to try to
enforce their licensing claims by bringing IBM to court, and try to
convince a judge that their claims are enforceable. And ONLY if a judge
agrees with SCO and rules in their favor will IBM be factually and
legally guilty of violating the UNIX license.

Same goes for MS and their private non-commercial individual customers.
All I am doing is using the very expensive software that was legally
sold to me according to my interpretation of "fair use." And as long as
the post-sale shrink-wrap Licensor doesn't try to legally enforce its
licensing CLAIMS over my "fair use," I'll go on legally "fairly using"
my software and go off into the sunset!

1.) MS has no legally established right to know what I do with the
software that is legally sold to me for the private non-commercial use
in the privacy of my home.

2.) MS has no legally established right to use a post-sale shrink-wrap
license to strip any private non-commercial individual of their "fair
use" rights!

3.) MS has had nearly 13 years to use due diligence and established
both points 1 and 2 are their right in a court of law, but instead MS
has knowingly done everything possible to avoid exercising their
responsibility under due diligence by getting a court to enforce the One
Computer licensing claims that strip individuals of the "fair use"
rights in the privacy of their home!

PA and WGA are just a way to use marketing principles to convince people
into believing what MS has been totally unwilling to legally prove for
nearly 13 years, and thus shirking their responsibility under due
diligence.
All it is, is a FUD campaign to convince the uneducated consumer what MS
and the rest of the corporate software copyright elite are too afraid to
legally prove in a real court of law!

Until the BSA Trust gets the balls to sue an a private non-commercial
individual and win in a court of law, my claims to "fair use" are more
legally valid to me than their post-sale shrink-wrap licensing claims,
and I have every legal and moral right to follow my interpretation until
the corporate software copyright elite legally prove otherwise, if they
can, and I am definitely not convinced that they would win, even if they
ever do grow some balls some time in the distant future!

When it comes to the post-sale shrink-wrap licensing of software and
private non-commercial individuals, there are no facts, just claims, so
when it comes down to it, it's up to each individual to decide for
themselves which claims apply to them in the privacy of their own home,
the corporate software copyright elite, or their own understanding of
their privacy rights and fair use rights in their own home!

You can claim that MS's EULA is totally factual until you are blue in
the face, but all you do is show how out of touch with reality, both
legally and morally, that you really are!

Default OEM versus Upgrade

Shows how creative logic is lol. Microsoft itself is using creative
rationales to make their points that are in no way any worse than anyone
else. The mediator is the courts that allow for them to do so. If
Microsoft would be able to, they would force people to upgrade and
deliscence windows after a point of time and make people pay yearly. lol.

Read section 1.2 (at least in the later versions) of the EULA for OEM
Windows XP.


Link please?

Personally I should be very happy if MS has resolved the frazzled power
cord issue as it applies to OEM licenses.

OEM installs are "licensed" to the first computer they are installed
on,
there is no moving the "License" to another computer according to the
OEM
license.

Moving your License from the old computer, no matter what shape the
computer is in, to a new computer, violates the license agreement.

Ah... but what is an "old computer" and what is a "new computer"? If a
part of my existing computer fails and I replace it, do I have a "new
computer"?. Suppose my power cord frazzles and I have to replace it. Do
I have "another" computer? Is my OEM license now invalid?
