    Unfortunately, some of us do not have the option of phoning big brother to
    ask if it's OK for us to use our legitimate copy of Windows Vista. I am deaf
    and need to re-activate my copy of Windows Vista Home Premium (retail) after
    a hardware upgrade. Apparently, contacting Microsoft tech support via e-mail
    will cost me. How do I side step this discrimination, anyone?

    Another option might be to have a hearing person be there for the phone
    call?

    Thanks for your help, but I do not have at TT/TTY phone. I guess I'm really
    kinda confused as to why I have to do this for a piece of software that I
    bought and paid for. Ubuntu doesn't make me ask for big brother's permission
    when I want to reinstall. Oh, and it doesn't crash once a day either. Oh,
    and it's free.

    Then use Ubuntu. Otherwise those are the options for activation in Vista
    (and XP), as far as I can tell. Good luck.

  5. If you can only find reasons to use Ubuntu, by all means do so.
    There is no one forcing anyone to use a particular operating system.

    You can also return Vista as long as you have had it less than 45
    days.
    Very easy if you live in North America.
