Ok, so recently I found out about a city youth program called Do It, which is a grant type thing where you write in an application thing and get up to $500 to help you with any educational program you want (learning to fly, being a clown, building a PC etc.) Anyways, from what I've heard everyone gets however much they want, and for my thing I wanna build a new computer. I already have a PC worth much more than 500, so its not really for me but rather for friends when they come over etc.

So, with that completely irrelivant stuff aside, I'm wondering if I can, in some way, avoid buying Windows XP but still have it on my comp. I already have 2 comps with XP and I REALLY dont wanna buy another. Is there any way I can get a free XP (I dont care how illegal it is heheh) or put XP on 2 computers somehow? I've heard you can do it, but it seems to simple, so there must be more to it.

Thanks all!

My FAQs:

Nvidia cards explained, and OCing/Benchmark programs


Play WoW? Send me a tell on Thunderlord. Name's Gambiit

If you have xp on your other computers and you say u dont want to buy another windows xp why not use the disk u have for the other 2 or where they installed when u bought your pc?
As for pirated stuff i dont support that! So your on your own there!
