The initial reports of product activation would certainly have justified your concerns. But, except for Microsoft haters who will use any excuse to complain (which may very well be you ), product activation has become a non-issue.
The linked article mentions, like Matrix said, how product activation has loosened up. Plus, you can start over every 120 days. So not only can you make many more changes that was initially thought, but you can install it on a completely different computer 4 times a year.
I'm not a MS lover. They've had unfair business practices, so go after them for that. They are not, by any reasoned definiton, a monopoly. Let the flaming begin .
