Windows on M1 Mac Tutorial:

This video is about whether you should activate Windows 11 ARM if you are running it as a virtual machine through software such as Parallels. I show some of the legal arguments about whether activating Windows 11 ARM complies with Microsoft’s EULA and what kind of product keys will be accepted by Windows 11 ARM. I also show the workarounds involved in removing annoyances such as the Activate Windows watermark and also how to change the background and personalize Windows 11 ARM. I also discuss grey market keys and the pros and cons of using them to permanently remove the nag screens fromWindows 11 ARM.
