Yes this is indeed true for I have seen it with my own eyes. From what I have seen XP home requires activation after a little while or else it locks up. But good old XP pro seems to have done away with this little feature - but you can still activate Pro to lock your key and let no one else use it if you want. So in theory, as long as no one activates their key when they obtain it from their dubious contacts, everyone is free to use the key multiple times on multiple PC's - even use windows updates too!
