    Lets get to it.

    You should probably run "Skype for Desktop" because the metro version is crap.

    Now regarding the activation stuff if you have a windows 8 key lying about that is retail for your previous copy or what you upgraded from hopefully you can take care of that. In other words activate with a windows 8 key.

    These people who activated their pcs with serial keys leaked on the net retail, by telephone,i think these people will be the victim of a blacklist and their activations falls.

    Or MS is stupid enough to let these people run with key retail activations leaked on the net?;)

    MS doesn't give a sh#t, they would block the key for further trials, activated OS's stays. :D

    retail keys -> pop up
    volume keys -> watermark
    so use gvlk key until activation.
