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.

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.

In other words, you're participating in spreading FUD. Yes "could get sued" - but there are a lot of frivolous & quickly throw own lawsuits around, being sued doesn't mean anything in itself.
No entity (company or not) is required to comply with license clauses that are contrary to the laws of the country...
