Why you did so? Was it really necessary to activate window$ if you
only wanted to see that everything is in order? Why you didn't convert
those useless window$ into cash? If you hadn't activated it you could
return some value for it. It is possible even in lawless Russia!
People! Do not activate window$! Return your money! Do not be a
sponsor for Billy!
