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.

EULA can claim that MS owns the Moon or what not. If it goes against the law - it's void.

There are no laws against owning the Moon by MS, by private or commercial entities in general... (the treaty is only about govs)

And, as we all surely know, the Moon is claimed (after he bought one of the Lunokhods) by Lord British. Ultimately, it's only a matter of the right price, I guess ...or an EULA in which Lord British wilfully enters.
