Ooops! They did it again... MicroSoft should stop playing with EULAs, and clarify what they are really selling.
A - It's a final product? Ok, we can't ask anything to MS, but we are *free* of doing whatever else we like with it (reverse engineering, reselling etc etc) and they can't change the EULA. B - It's a service they provide for a limited time, as in the last EULAs? Ok, we can't reinstall it on different machines etc etc, but they must provide support and fixes, clarify the time limitations and fees, and be suitable for product related problems (data-loss, etc).
Otherwise, is a legal farce that sooner or later will be ended by the public.
