I'm glad you said that.  If I was going to have to pay M$ to run Linux,
I was thinking of shooting them with laser eyes or something.  I have no
plans to ever support M$ in any shape, form or fashion.  Period.   

Thing is, they will likely try to make it so you can't disable it
eventually.  Some politician will try to make it a law if nothing else. 
After all, politicians are clueless anyway.  Reminds me of chickens and
it raining.  :/
