I am living OEM free and loving the freedom. I feel different. I feel I have more responsability though. I feel the time it took and the debt I have to pay back. I feel good and optimistic. I feel committed even though I feel pressure. I feel good. I feel OEM's have their place and if I needed a computer, I could get one pre-loaded quickly. So I would get an OEM if I had to. But I would rather choose not. I am owning my current copy of Windows and it is good. I am done.
