If I call 0800 676 334 I hear two clicks and then an automated voice message about the number being unavailable.

I ended up activating via 0800 800 004. Had to speak to a rep. Apparently the automated system is down. How is Microsoft so incompetent that they can't keep their own activation phone system running? Speaking over a  scratchy phone line to a guy in a chaotic call centre is not an efficient way to exchange massive strings of numbers.

Hmm, I need to activate a client's PC via phone, and that 0800 676 334 number is still out of action. Will try the 004 one when I have the patience!

I just called the Linux activation phone line.

Oh, wait, no I didn't.

Yes, because none of the commercial versions of Linux require some form of subscription or activation.. oh wait..





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
