Don’t complain about Windows

Someone on a mailing list was whining about how his totally legit copy of Windows XP had taken offense at some changes he made to his system, and he’d had to phone up Microsoft and grovel for a new activation code to enter before he could boot his PC and get his data back. Well, I’m kinda unsympathetic towards people who choose to support Microsoft by buying their software but then whine about how awful it is.
