My Dog Ate My Motherboard

Recently, MS pointed out a hidden cost of the OEM version. They said that an OEM version was a one-horse OS, the horse being the motherboard. Replace the mobo in a machine, and you have to replace the OS, too, and their activation procedure is apparently good enough to figure out what you've done.

Me! I don't think so. It is interesting to hear other excuses people may be using.
