    two weeks now fighting with my computer over windows xp home and all the problems I had with SP1.

    I just went out and purchased a retail copy of XP home upgrade. but I didnt stop there, I no longer trust my current computer ( I think the motherboard is now jinxed by SP1)

    I also purchased an AMD XP 2000 & ASUS A7V motherboard.

    I called MS tech support and told the tech that I think SP1 locked my motherboard BIOS and he assured me that MS doesnt do that., although I told him that Ive read that on several websites.

    so anyway, MS wins this time, I "purchased" my copy of XP but I still win though since I have every other version of windows (95, 98, 98SE, ME, NT 4.0 server, NT 4.0 client, 2000 server, 2000 client, XP home full, XP pro full)

    not to mention, Office 97' Office 2000 premium, Office XP, Publisher XP, Exchange 2000, Mappoint 2001.

    Did you at least buy the OEM version of XP, which you can get online when you purchase new hardware. It would make the O/S $120USD (at least for pro)....:thumb:

    If you know a Student with current student ID card (hopfully in your Family, so you aren't cheating) just go to any community collage and get a student discount. About 1/3 to 2/3 off retail price.

    If they don't stock it they will order it.

    Any grade student ID ! I would not try elementary school ID, But middle school and up works. :geek:

    The only way to buy is with a discount.

    :)

    Listen!, on every hardisk you have some unpartioned space that can't anyway be partionied by windows because its been using by an partion table. But after SP1 installation it will be used by windows as an selfdestructor, its mean all hardisks will be logged. Yes every new update of programs has their own log system, its like trojans. Its means you can never get caught if you have an pirated version. They must prove it. Thats because its on the unpartioned space on you hardrive. But this has not been yet confirmed by MS that they will shutdown every single pirated windows version, noone knows when. Most of the programs you use today is stealthed by trojans. Every single cracked version of MSWindows is an trojan that have been stealthed. Trust me, don't no longer use MS products. Use the Macintosh OS they have alltime beeing before the MS system. In the database of MS they have been tracking your records for an longtime but outside US they can't take you. If your country have an MS HQ, they already know you. But today every single user use an cracked version they think. They all have your name all the programs you have been cracked and your real name and adress. They actuaaly don't use your IP. Every single network card is using an NIP, hrm! Lye or Real? Remember ///GNU
