Ryan was talking about how easy it is to get around it, I'm wondering if someone can further explain how. It's not like I'm even bullshitting MS... I already have like three Windows 7 computers at home, plus a student discount version of full windows 7 that I bought for my 2009 custom tower. I just don't have the email address at school I used then, the pc long since fried, but I salvaged the hard drive. I'd like to put Win 8 on parallels on my iMac. Is there a good workaround so ill only need the $40 edition?
