Windows With Windows 8 right around the corner, the usual game of reading the end-user license agreements and spotting the different versions is in full swing. Usually, this is a game of ridicule as Microsoft comes up with ever more convoluted version schemes and EULA terms. This time around, though, the company seems to be taking steps to make things easier, as Ed Bott reports.

On top of all this, Microsoft has also simplified the licenses themselves. They're now all divided into two parts; the first part is a human readable version of the license in QA-format, and the second part is the full-on legalese version.

Hmm... I wonder if this will give to many a false sense of security as they will probably stop reading after the Q&A section.
(yes, I trust MS-lawyers are more skilled than their engineers ;) )
