That's bizarre. The post above was by me ("thrawnis") but it shows the username "JereDWeaver" instead.
Rafe, Tom, Brian T., and Jason were discussing the "uselessness" of the ability that Microsoft included to extend the Windows 7 activations. Personally, I love this feature! I have an obsession with messing with the registry, tweaking random settings, etc. on my computer(s) at home and every few months, I reformat my computer. At this point reformatting and reinstalling the O.S. and most essential programs only takes a few hours. But Microsoft limits the number of activations I can do (even though I have a 100% legal retail copy of Vista), so instead I extend the activation timeout as long as I can.
Obviously this is a limited use situation, but it is extremely helpful for me so I am very happy that this feature will continue to exist in Windows 7.
