Microsoft Licencing for Vista/Windows 7

Even for a corporate it does not matter how much you pay Microsoft you still need to tell them (via an activation server) that you have a valid Windows license at worst every 30 days and at best every 180 days.

What happens when Vista is currentRelease-2 (end of life or four years from release date), does Microsoft just kill your licences? If they could have done that for Windows XP, this week was when they would have, XP is now EOL as Windows 7 is the second release after XP... But I guess you are all off Windows XP by now so no biggy for you right. You can not even buy an XP licnce today accoring to Microsoft...
