    I just read a page that was linked to that web site that Vista DOES deactivate your windows XP >>>FOREVER<<<. But supposedly theres a work around. I don't know if it's legal though.....

    Well I don't know if thats true but that would only apply to using an upgrade copy, not for a clean install or for dual boot XP and Vista. The only draw back to this is that if you want to go back to XP from Vista, and I think few people will fall into that boat of users that buy an upgrade and wish to go back - which should be successfully done by using the uninstall method.
