I'd also like to say Vista does require activation.
Vista from build 5112 until 5231 does require activation. On build 5112 it is done by Start>Run>Licenseui.exe and on 5219 and 5231 it is done by Start>Run>SLUI.exe. That will bring up the activation for Vista.

On 5112, after 3 days or so, activation would come up then when I went to click it, it was gone. It done this every other day and I was never able to activate it.

Thats fine. Though what you said in the other thread has caused a good deal of confusion. Thurrot claims the sidebar is back and you say it isn't. How does one get the sidebar?

I don't know I always activate I'd assume it locks you out just like XP.

Vista wont lock down. But alot of the functions of Vista become unuseable. I did have a problem with my Beta 1 (5112) serial and had to get a new one but my time ran out before i got it. I could do only basic functions. Surf web, look thru my computer. But aside from that i couldnt do much more. After i got my good serial i had to format and reinstall.
