correct,always receiving a discount for the ms-tax from the importer,but Bill
always get's his money.
For xp,i could place the software on dual-boots desktops when customer asked
me,and they get the xp for free,so Bill does not get money twice(this
customer should otherwise also buy the software)
But with Vista,it is not possible anymore,even when it's another asus
notebook,no activation:call asus or ms.
