I have a legal copy of XP x64. But I didn't actually pay for it. I won it in a drawing.

4 copies of OEM Vista Ultimate, 9 copies of OEM Vista Home Premium and 12 copies of XP since September last year.......bought, sold & installed by myself :roadrunner: :scara:

I own a legal copy of XP32/64 for myself, but pirate everything else that comes my way. :likewinmandr2:

Just to note: After Vista, MS will never get a penny from me regarding my own usage.

Mixed bag here-
A legal Vista , ME and windows 98-- although the last two have been a few years since I ram them.
Of course all the Linux distros are legal.

All the other OS I run are "Pirate" versions
Sorry M$soft... :likewinmandr2:

I have legal copies of Vista Ult x64, Home Premium x86, XP Pro x64, XP Pro x86, and XP Home. Some I have multiple copies or at least multiple legal keys. I have a box full of Win 95 A, B, C as well as Win 98 and Win 98 SE. My main production system has been and remains XP x64. As pretty as Vista is and as useful as it might be one day, nothing can beat XP x64. I am running an old Skt 775 P4 with 2 GB DDR 2 533. I just ordered 2 GB more RAM for the system. That 4 GB RAM should really hit a sweet spot with the CPU and the OS...talker. :likewinmandr2:
