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.

In most European countries the EULA is meaningless, regardless of what software vendors want you to believe.

Do you know what it is in the US? Is the EULA fully enforceable in the US?

An eula could be very enforceable. Companies are required to comply with them. A common home user may not care. A company that could get sued or fined would care.
