I have some general Qs on my mind about Windows on EC2:
- Don't Windows servers normally have a key/license written somewhere into them, in which case can I not extract this (legitimate) license using a hacking tool and use it back in my own office environment?
- The new Micro instances are cool. But are they sufficient for running Windows, considering that it is typically quite the memory hog (and isn't the minimum recommended memory for Wind2k8 something like 2GB anyway)?
- What's taking Windows so long to load on EC2? Any way to speed it up?
