Unlike previous version of Windows, that only required a valid, older CD to be inserted to verify ownership, upgrade versions of Windows Vista require a previous OS installation to function. A workaround for this issue was posted to web within hours of Vista's release, however, that didn't require an older OS at all. It was initially thought that MS would do something right away to eliminate the workaround, but now that doesn't seem to be the case...
So much for buying full versions of Vista. If there's no real consequence to using this workaround, the incentive for consumers to spend much more money on a full version of Vista just isn't there.
