Windows Genuine Annoyance

Wyatt • • Rants

I’ve had my same Windows XP and Office 2003 installation for at least 3 years and I have to say that I cannot understand why I have had to install at least 25 different releases of Microsoft’s Genuine Advantage software. Every time I need to do an update, “We need to make sure you’re version of Windows hasn’t been stolen since the last month you did an update.” It makes me the kind of nuts that only leads to carbines and random notes. I just don’t understand how I’m going to ‘re-steal’ a version of Windows if I haven’t stolen it the first 25 times. And secondly, why in the hell would I steal it? You’re pretty damned optimistic there Microsoft if you think anyone would steal crap.
