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.

"Am I glad I don't use Windows! I can't imagine wasting time on decoding MS licensing schemes every release.

You'd spend less time doing that than you would dealing with the constant breakage in linux. Assuming you're a linux user of course.

Normally I wouldn't feed the troll, but figured I will because it's early enough...

Linux is creaming Windows in the server space because it breaks all the time.

I've had an Arch Linux (yup, that's right, a rolling release) running on my desktop for the last 4 years without a reinstall.

Yet Windows Server 2003 will sometimes randomly remove an active directory account. Did it to the manager once, was pretty funny.
