Some things are easy to take for granted: some hardware on my laptop failed tonight (won't even POST), so I just took out the HDD and put it into an old one. Crisis averted.
You can do that with some other systems: they'll tell you to buy a new license, or call you nasty things and assume that you're doing something they think is wrong. Sometimes you can't even upgrade your hardware without this happening.
