Windows Microsoft plans to market several versions of Vista but will distribute all of the OS bits with every product shipped so users can easily unlock and step up to more full-featured versions using electronic keys, sources said.

We want modular not a toll os. LOL!

Ms has 50 billion in the bank, why they got to play games with you. Why can't they be like they been and give you the whole thing!

Oh no they got to rob you one last time before their OS revenue dies! And since according to Balmer Vista will be the last major OS release they want to get you good!

You're right that history does tend to repeat itself, however history is also full of genuine change. I can't predict the future, maybe the conspiracy theorists are right. But when I look at this plan I see good thing for consumers. I also see good things for microsft as others have pointed out, such as simplifying production and support. But since when is "win-win" a bad thing? just because one of the winners happens to be Microsoft?
