Roy Schestowitz < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > espoused:
Microsoft's business model is based on relicensing windows to everyone
every 1.5-3 years or so. "Saving" XP is not acceptable, since there
will be no further licensing revenue.
Perhaps the most likely possibility is that they'll start to charge for
"Service Packs", perhaps not much at first, but it could rise over time.
Whether they could ever be successful at stopping non-sanctioned copying
of the service packs is questionable, though.
