    Well, if I know I'll need another copy of XP, I wait until I order some RAM or a HDD, then I include the cheaper OEM XP copy in the price.

    But if it was for ME...I'll just buy the license, thanks.

    That is even cheaper yet, and I already have the CD.

    This is not the OEM version, it is the retail version that has free tech support which may come in handy


    $182 is the cheapest I have seen it.

    Yes, but M$ only charges $35 for a tech support account, correct?

    And since you are armed with a wonderful resource like the WWW, which includes such gems as Tech Talk, you can safely do away with any of their minimum-wage high-school dropouts who can't even manage to read their scripts properly half of the time.

    I learned 80% of my PC teching skills from the Net, and the other 20% I gained from hands-on experience, working at ISP's and PC shops. Now I freelance and have no need for other income.

    YMMV!
     
  8. I have a couple of pre SP-1 versions of XP.Both are OEM.One is XP Home that required activation and the other is XP Pro that didn't require any activation.They both came with PC's I bought.
