Submission + - Vista to limit re-activation for hobbyists?

cojsl writes: "Extreme Tech discusses how the Windows Vista EULA appears to limit activations to two times per license. Meaning that "From past experience with Windows XP, a motherboard swap triggers a re-activation. I've successfully reactivated the same copy of Windows XP a number of times after a motherboard swap with no problem. But the above terms seem to indicate that the third activation will fail, meaning you, dear reader, get to feed the Microsoft machine more money." Potentially bad news for the D.I.Y.er"
