If you want to sell your retail copy of XP make a for sale thread. For this transaction you would need to provide a picture of the retail packaging. OEM keys are non-transferable, so you may not sell those.

You can call windows up with a sob story of how you just bought your disk and can not find the key must have thrown it away, and they might just give you a new one. I know it sounds hard to believe, and i wouldn't believe it either until my sister did it.

You are correct, it is certainly worth a try. I just got a 30% discount off a software order. I just sent the rep an email asking for a discount. He replied back with 30% off. You never know until you try.

That is cheap. If you want free go to linux. Microsoft operating systems have a tremendous amount of software available, while linux is catching up it will be a while. For this added compatiblity you must pay a price. $100 is nothing when you need it. The idea that many people don't get is what they *need*. I for example need a professional OS (be it XP or Vista). The software development that I do requires plenty of software (most of which MS makes available to me at a very resasonable cost). So please don't waste time complaining about the cost of software, if you don't need it don't buy it. Compared to what I make, the amount of money that I spend in software licensing is tiny.

The discount that I got was for an enterprise level Spam filter for Exchange 2003, not XP.

To clarify- She actually did lose her windows cd key, and she called them up and they gave her another. If clayton really did lose his cd key and isn't just wanting a free key, I see nothing immoral in asking for another. he has already payed for it. I think it is a bit silly to require users to keep track of a 20 digit number just so they can keep an os. I think that windows should sell some kind of little hardware device that you have to plug into your machine, because it would be impossible to pirate.

I am not trying to insinuate anything. I just think that for some items we should be more vigilant. Just as Clayton needs to understand that his thread *could* have been construed as something less than legal; you need to realize how easy it would be to sell an OEM XP key. I am glad that you are not trying to scam somebody. However, if we don't start a precident how do we stop those members that *are* trying to scam our members? Think about how many members we have here that have OEM keys that won't be used once Vista hits in full force.
