Submission + - OEM Vista Activation Tested

VistaVic writes: "Ever since Microsoft first announced plans for an updated user license on the retail versions of Windows Vista, debate has been raging as to what would happen with the OEM versions. OEM operating systems are popular with enthusiasts because of their lower prices but if Microsoft would not allow them to transfer the license to a new PC (or a heavily upgraded PC) then the OEM license wouldn't be of much use. PC Perspective has taken one of the early OEM versions that was released last week and put the activation to the test and found that indeed they could move the license to another PC after activation, but it required a call Microsoft's activation center."
