    I'm not quite sure what you're getting at, but...

    What many people who do that (and the big companies, too) do is provide OEM copies of Windows XP with the computer. These copies come at reduced cost, but can't legally be put on any computer other than the one they're first put on. It saves money for the builder and for the buyer. Most regular users won't know what to do with a retail copy of XP anyway.

    I believe Yawgm0th hit the nail on the head with the whole OS thing.

    KoolDrew,

    Please be considerate of others and use a spell checker before you decide to post anything. It's hard to decipher what you wrote and it's also hurting my eyes!!!
