According to linked news, in September, Microsoft will require users to use WGA or it will turn off Windows. The author ask a valid question. How can Microsoft turn off a legally purchased product.

I have legal Windows and a few not so legal, because I like to experiment. But this is the last straw for me, I think. I'd already figured that when XP support stopped (and since Vista seems to be more than I'll ever want or use) that I would begin looking into Linux. Well, I think it's time to start looking around now.
