Unable to activate Vista!

Its possible that you are experiencing Server Time out error because so many
persons are trying activate at the same time. I recommend trying at a later
date, you have 14 day grace period.

I dun tink it is a server timeout. Assuming the activation server is the
same, I tried multiple times and also did Longhorn Server beta activation at
the same time. The longhorn server activation went through.

Another thing is that, the phone support agent is also unable to activate
for me, which I have to repeat the numbers to confirm that it is correct (but
not activatable).

Different Servers, for different programs, Longhorn Server is only available
to Technical Testers, TAP and I think MSDN.
