The Microsoft announcement says "Use of the software is governed by the Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistance 6.5 Beta License Agreement accessible as a file in this download." So you can't read the terms of service without downloading (and installling?) the software.

If you scroll down further, you'll see "Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant 6.5 beta License Terms.rtf" which can be downloaded and viewed separately without having to install the program.

+ - Microsoft extends XP Home support through 2014

Support was supposed to end 2 years after Vista was released, but under the new life cycle, they will enter extended support in April 2009, so critical security updates will be available for an additional five years.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
