Reply To: 21 Mar 15 Is your copy of Windows legal?
Microsoft can put all sorts of terms in their EULA, but it doesn’t necessarily make those terms legally enforceable. That is for a court to decide. Let’s take the contrived example that they decide to say, any computer upon which the user installs Windows is now property of Microsoft. So one day they decide they need some more platforms for testing, so they bop on by your home to take your computer to their labs. I can’t imagine any court upholding Microsoft’s claim that because Windows is on that computer that it becomes their property, and thus they may confiscate it at will.
