    I own a fully legitimate copy of office 2010, and I want to minimize the number of automatic activations, because activating over the phone is a royal pain in the ass. When I move from windows 7 to windows 8, can I backup and restore the activation, or do I have to re-activate again?

    Office 2010 Backup on W7 should restore on W8. Office 2013 is a whole other story.
