I know exactly how you feel. Microsoft needs some common sense. I downloaded a beta of windows server 2008 from the microsoft website!And microsoft decided that what i downloaded from them was not genuine and i may be a victim of counterfeiting
Edit: Windows XP activation assistance web site is unavailable now. Thanks microsoft, we love your help
More of an edit:"While we've been pleased with the positive response we've seen and heard from customers using Windows Vista, there are some customers who need a little more time to make the switch to Windows Vista," Microsoft said in a press statement.
Even more Edit: The sad thing is, microsoft takes windows xp off the shelves and without activation it is useless. Hackers (Activation cracks) will last longer than microsoft will. Who should I have more faith in...?
