Vista activation
Does Vista (Ultimate) activate automatically?

I want to play with it without activating it to make sure everything works.
If it doesn't work right I will reinstall XP
and wait

Thanks

...Chip..

During install there is a box you can check to tell it not to automatically
activate. You'll have 30 days then which can be reset twice after that.
You can also install without entering a product key.

Vista does NOT Activate automatically, even though one checks the box for
that option. Once on the Desktop, one will have exactly 3 days to Activate
the product. I believe this to be a bug. If not, what happened to the 30
day grace period?
