In Amman, I called Microsoft and they gave me a free Office 2010 key haha.  (Said I was tired of using Pirated version)

 

The instructions for activating Windows for my school involve connecting first to the campus network through VPN and then activating :) 

 

Very easy to do so. Connect to the VPN that is.

I went from Pirated 7 > Win 8 after I redeemed my $16 upgrade voucher lol.  Then I realized that the server did not verify the model/serial, so bought a few extra licences for all my other devices..

 

I don't know what the hate is about, but Windows 8 is a lot better than 7.  I have a lot less 3rd party programs after the upgrade.

I got my Win 8 pro for the voucher as well :)

 

I like Windows 8 when using it like Windows 7. I REALLY dislike the Windows Store and Metro Apps that are default for items like pdfs, music or pics at first.. But everything else is pretty good

Eh, they got rid of the ol' traditional Start Menu and pretty much killed it with everything else.

OCZ 's gone bust. Sad, since I liked their RAM and then their SSDs.

Years ago i had four 1Gb sticks of OCZ memory in an old AMD Athlon machine, after about 4 years one of them went faulty and i found out the memory had a lifetime warranty.  After exchanging a few emails with OCZ i was requested to send them all back for testing, within a few days i received a package with four brand new 2Gb modules.  That level of customer service is just unheard of these days, sad to hear they will no longer be in business :(
