Microsoft "At one time or another you may have used a rented-out Windows PC, be that at business kiosks or Internet cafes. Technically speaking, though, doing so has never been legal. As of January 1, 2010, the licensing terms for Windows and Microsoft Office have been tweaked so that those that wish to rent, lease, or outsource desktop PCs to third parties with either software can do so by paying an extra fee."

This opens the possibility for people to lease computers at a cheap price, and get a new computer every few years.

Side Note: Every advertisement that I see on OSNews is a "Google Nexus One" ad lately...

On that side note, I was thinking about that yesterday...

Google is, by all means probably the largest advertising firm ever created. Now that they have their very own product to sell.... you'll see ads EVERYWHERE!
