There goes that plan...

I've just ordered 4 new computers, due to serious failures in a few classes, and had an idea.
The new computers are licenced for Windows 7 Home Premium [SP1], but will actually be running Windows XP.
My idea was... rejiggle the licences around [Put the licence for the old machine on the new one] and then there'd be some decent Win7 lincences going spare. [which I may or may not have planned to aquire...]
Turns out, you can't do that. Even though we've paid for it, we can't use it how we see fit. [Move unused licences to machines that need them, thus saving us some monies.]
OEM licences aren't transferrable. [Or they won't support transferred licences...]
[censored] you, Micro$oft. If I have n licences sitting around on computers THAT DON'T WORK, I'm reusing them.
I'm not going to pay out for something I ALREADY HAVE, just because your £100Squillion profits "aren't enough".
God damn greedy companies.
