    Basically it's like this:

    The way Linus introduces his sponsors makes me feel like I'm living in the Truman show.

    Microsoft: "Please activate windows"

  • rappatic

    It’s not “pirating” Windows if it’s literally allowed to use Windows unlicensed

    What this boils down to is Windows is trying to solve Theseus's ship and Linus is paying for their answer

  • Pieteek

    Linus: We don't activate Windows, because it's gonna be broken after hardware changes again

    People treat piracy like a trash, but scoop on them whenever they need it

    This vid literally showed me how to re activate windows for my new hardware. Cheers Linus.

    Even if linus does an Apology video it would still be Sponsord

  • ghost_peel

    I really don’t get why, but this is one of my favourite LTT videos. The pent up passive aggression, probably, it’s just timeless.

  • JKitSme

    Everyone: Activate windows!

  • Crosshead

    I don't think I've ever seen someone pull a sponsor out of their ass better than Linus. I swear he just pulls them from out of a magical hat at the most unexpected moments.

    The harder software firms make it to be legit, the more it drives people to piracy.

    Same thing happened to me. Some tech who was working on my PC installed the power supply BACKWARDS, so it was basically blasting hot air onto a lot of sensitive components. It actually worked for several months until it... Didn't. Motherboard was fried. Had to replace it, and so my Windows deactivated.

    I've had this same discussion with Microsoft. I constantly mess with hardware (I owned a computer store in the 90's)

    I love how every thing he tried to show failed. Just because he was recording it. Just like when you want show someone an issue that happens with you but it never happens when there's another person near you. lmao

    Your a good man for walking the newer computer techs through this. Its insane to waste your codes for a testing purposes and no one should ever want you to if they are actual computer techs or even computer enthusiasts.
