Sorry, I wasn't clear. I don't know. What I DO know is that if it doesn't
have one, it is definately a violation. And AFAIK, Having valid Windows
licence for machine is not tied to being able to boot MSWIN.
E.g. To best of my knowledge, This machine I'm composing this message from,
still has valid MSWIN licence, through it is definately not dual-boot.

I think no. This has been there for long time. IIRC, even MSWIN98 had it,
almost certainly MSWIN95 too. IMO, It is there to prevent you from
timesharing the box to circumvent licence requirements. IIRC, there is
nothing else in the EULA that forbids doing so. I could be wrong too.
