How have the enthusiasts amongst us found Vista's behaviour to frequent hardware changes? One of the reasons I was originally opposed to upgrading from XP was the concern that folks who change hardware frequently would find themselves SOL after a certain # of hardware changes. Was that concern valid? Does anybody (with a legit Vista license) have first hand experience with the process or is everybody on Vista who changes hardware frequently running some form of "patch" which does an end-run around the issue? (No discussion on the actual "end-run" please... :) ).
The only problem that I have had has been when my mobo blew a cap, since it is a OEM copy I had to call MS.
I have changed everything from CPU's to hdd's and that was the firstime I had a problem.
