End User License Agreement. Some recent one's from MS are bad news. Something like "I, The Bill, own your PC, own you, your house, your kids, your wife and your future."

As the provisions of a EULA aren't known until right before you decide to install--or not--a chunk of software, that you already bought they are patently illegal.

As MS has been told that they are a legal outfit, a fine upstanding corporate ""citizen,"" they can do any dang thing they want. Warm and fuzzy, is it not so?

EULA's from other companies are almost as bad as MS's. Maybe even worse. Some "great programs" that are packed with SpyWare come to mind.

I haven't installed it yet and I probably WON'T, It's just my thing. I don't want to have Billy have that kinda control over me.
