Buy one Corporate Edition CD or an ISO disk, burn it as many times as needed, CD-Key can be used over and over from Corporate edition of XP. So no...not everyone has to.
My beef with a part of ATi is there driver issues. There is a specific ritual to uninstalling and installing/upgrading there drivers, some people have to use safemode, others don;t...it seems like there are many compatibility issues with other branded mobos and such. i myself have to go back to Windows default drivers, uninstall current version, reboot, install new ones, reboot and it works. With nVidia i could just uninstall current, install new ones, and then reboot once...took maybe 3-4mins. Not a big issue...but if you do it WRONG you will have serious gfx problems installing new ones over old ones, safe mode might not even be able to correct this. it just seems to take an advanced computer user to simply install drivers...and it turns away n00bs.
