+ - Vista to be Downloadable (Legally)

ubermiester writes "According to various sources, Windows Vista will be available for legal download as of January 30th — the same day it will be available in retail stores. MS-NBC Online notes that, "a relatively low number of computer users are likely to get Vista by downloading it from the Internet, but the mere availability indicates that Microsoft is fiddling with distribution methods for the extremely profitable franchise at the core of its business." It will be available via the MS Marketplace site in conjunction with a Circuit City offering. And for users who eventually realize that the version of Vista they purchased is just not doing the job, they can simply activate the features they want by unlocking them via online activation."

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a rigged demo.
