Default What is this $59 for support for Vista after 90 days

I am reading some site and I go to windows and you have 90days of support after you activate it and then they will charge you $59 ,that is cazy ,Does that mean if you do a clean install and have to reactivate later on are you going to be charge $59 for them to activate it since that is a fourm of support.

Maybe it is just a last resort of support ,but it would suck if you had it over a year and just wanted to do a clean install and you go to activate it and it says you have reached your limmit and you will need to call microsoft to get it reactivated ,and then they tell you that you will have to call a support line that charges to get it activated .I can not see that happen but you never know microsoft loves there money.

activation calls are not part of support, you won't get charged for re-activation

and trust me you don't want to call microsoft tech support, for first 5 minutes you will be talking to some that actually knows english is polite, this person creates the ticket and transfers you to "tech support". Where you get some Indian person that doesn't speak english, you have to repeat everything 5 times, ask you same ****ing question over and over again.

for gods sake i had to explain to that ****ing moron what classic view in control panel was.
