Good point. Not sure what they consider a large hardware change either. I don't think they really care too much about slot cards: AGP/PCI. They know that stuff will be changed out and swapped around and replaced. I think they're concerned with you buying a new system and throwing your old drive in there to avoid buying a new set of Windows.

I really can't wait until a new OS comes around that rivals Windows just in availability. It's not that I would mind using Linux, its that there is very little software available to use with it.

I completely agree with you.
