IMHO Microsoft is pulling wool over everyone's eyes. They're boasting of this new 'experience' as they always do... and most users turn off their processor-hungry extras only to see the skeleton behind the interface which (up to this point, at least) is nothing more than an interface very similar to Windows 95. Why would Microsoft do this? They're selling essentially the same product, to the same people, every couple years... while they add these neat little piracy checks which are simply causing more aggrivation for legitimate users. The bottom line is full of dollar signs.
