I don't think it's a good agreement -- it is FAR too restrictive.
Especially
with "product activation" spyware and "DRM" locks that allow Microsoft
to commandeer what you do with your computer. Microsoft is such a
big company, would the little bit of profit lost from not having such
things in there really be all that much? Apparently even a small loss
is
too much for Greedy Gates though.

PS. what is a "slaver"? Did you mean a "master"?
