nitewulf said:i don't see how it really matters anyway. If you can download a copy of windows XP. You can also DL a CD key that will work with it. I wouldn't be surprised if someone had created a keygenerator by now for bootleg windows copies.
I'm not condoning the use of such bootleg copies or their accompining illegal cd keys. Just pointing out that they are availabie and that a school displaying their legal ones has no bearing on the fack that illegal ones can bet downloaded just as easlily as corporate edidions of XP.
