XP correctly detected all my hardware. It then asked me for my name, address, telephone, bank account number, and credit card number, plus I was required to place my right hand on the Microsoft security mouse so it could read my fingerprints. I also had to hold my eyes next to the web-cam so it could conduct a scan of my retinas. Since "product activation" is necessary to get the system working, XP proceeded to dial my modem and register my personal data with Microsoft Passport, while at the same time signing me up for MSN and billing my credit card without asking. How convenient can you get?
i kinda like them comments ...

p.s. this has nothing to do with linux, or getting help in linux, so post these threads in General ...
