Windows 8 Developer Preview License Agreement

Windows 8 Developer Preview License Agreement

This is the license agreement screen for the Windows 8 Developer Preview. It made me laugh.

I particularly like it because the license agreement has become possibly the only step in the streamlining of installations to have remained, pretty much intact, since inception. Legal teams around the world have prevented us getting rid of it, despite the elephant in the room that it’s skipped past by nearly everyone. This is the nearest thing I’ve seen to accepting this fact from a company as large (and with as many legal advisers) as Microsoft.

In this particular example, it’s not even obvious how you would scroll down to actually read it – a tacit acknowledgement that probably no-one ever will!
