Very true. This is especially bad for gamers or hardware enthusiasts who like to upgrade and upgrade often. I detest the thought of calling or contacting MS for another key, to use on MY computer, on an Os the I bought.

As for the registration, the way I understand it works is that the Install chooses 2-3 random pieces of hardware so come up with your registration code. Then it sends that to MS. So, if you upgrade your computer frequently, you will quickly run out of your allowed reinstalls and will have to call MS every time you add a new component.
