Part of the problem is that Microsoft make their licensing far too
complex, (OEM, Retail, VLK, Open license, ... etc.) to which they add
the extra complication of too many variants of a single product (cf
Windows Vista and Office).

I sometimes wonder if this approach is either to make work for lawyers
or make it very probable that their users are infringing the terms of
the license (both the same thing really!).
