I would just keep it. I still have my CD for Windows ME and we all know how that one turned out. Also still have my 95 and 98SE as well. Never know when you may need it or if you'll need it.

Yea...my thinking on that one

Kind of BS that I could give it away though, end result is someone else is still using it that technically shouldn't be...(then again the legality of either is questionable no?)

That's a really fuzzy line that I'm not quite sure about. If it were free, there shouldn't be a problem

Well yea, but is it legal to do so? I think selling the disc is, but the key isn't (which doesn't matter since it's borked), even still whats that even worth?

Ninja Edit: @justarealguy

yep it's retail
