Technical rant


As NGOs here in Cambodia get a little more tech-savvy, some of them want to go legit with their software. They're willing to pony up the money for a Windows license, but they don't see why they then have to go through a lengthy re-install process.

So here's my question. If Microsoft really wants people to stop using pirated software, why don't they make it easy to do so? As far as I can tell, there is no simple, fast way to change the Windows license code in use by a computer.
