Surely 16 negates any need for 15 as they make no claims as to what working
correctly entails? Or to put it another way, as MS makes no claims as to
how well Windwos XP Home will work, they are more than happy to assure users
that Windwos will work in this way - namely anyway, as that will mean that
it is working correctly (even if it BSODs every 5 minutes)?
18``If Microsoft chooses, they may pay you for any damages, but never more

I wonder if payment by them of a nominal amount - in this case $5 - is such
that they get covered by some obscure law somewhere if you accept the
payment meaning that you can't then sue them or something; ie that they've
offered you compensation, and you've accepted - the problem being that you
don't realise it?
