WinXP SP2 Pro OEM $102

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I know Retail is preferable, but it's $102.

If you want it, then here's the link to the store.

I just sent them an e-mail asking how long the sale price will last. I'll update if they reply.

Just wondering...but why would you buy XP, when Vista is very near the same price? After all, Vista is the future....after SP3 (I've heard), XP won't be getting anymore updates and MS will be phasing it out. So why waste the money on it? Unless its for an older computer that can't run Vista....that's the only reason I could see it.

maybe if someone wants to dual boot, they can have XP and Vista for a reason that is beyond me.

Because I personally would stay with XP. I think I will wait until Vista gets some much needed upgrades or until the next operating system.

I only posted this because that's a great deal on XP Pro SP2 full OEM, and so I figured I shouldn't just keep it to myself, hence the posting.

I never asked for opinions. I'm just tossing it out there for anyone who may want to take advantage of it.

Not to be an ass or anything, but you wouldn't have gotten as many opinions if this was in the Deals section, where it should be.

I haven't slept for over 36 hours, so I'm not all there. I'll ask for it to be moved.

Moreover, I figured that my context was clear by putting the price in the subject line. Not only that, but there's nothing I said that leaves the floor open for discussion about why anyone would use it, or anything like that. All I was doing was tossing it out there really quickly on a gut feeling that maybe somebody could benefit from this info.
