Anyway, for some reason it's become unstable so I can't actually use it now.

All I know about OSX is that it beats vista hands down on everything except gaming.

do you activate your Games when you buy it (enter key when it asks in the install process? Yes I guess you do, do you , if you play any online games, realise that it gets "activated" every time you play? checking keys for piracy etc...)
so draconian isn't really the right term .. protecting MS's intellectual property may be the right one to go for.

Once the teething troubles of compatibility and change are over, I feel like I'm left with an operating system that is a lot more stable, a lot more secure, and has a great deal more base functionality
