Really, you could go without ever activating. Many people format every 3 months to keep performance up. I used to on my old XP machine. I used to have an Acronis image of my full computer with everything installed, and every format if I had new stuff installed, I woud just make a new one.

I don't like Microsoft, I associate with it.

What planet do you live on where you think many people "format" every 3 months? How about just keeping your computer running well with common sense usage and preventive maintenance?

Hey i format every 3 months he pretty much nailed it for me. But i mainly do it because i love messing with the os and sometimes i break something, or i think i broke something so i reformat.

It depends on how you define "many". Out of the billions of people on Earth, there might be a few hundred who format and reinstall everything every couple of months just to maintain top performance and get rid of unwanted crap. Hundreds of people could be described by the word "many".

If only I could download the final version of win 7 and just enter my activation key when it is released.
