Newegg ( www.newegg.com ) has the OEM and regular versions really cheap...

:D

if you are a student, you can get one cheap as well...

$90. It's where I got mine from.

Yeah, I am student but in Sweden. Do you think I still can get a good discount? And where do I buy these student licenses?

Thanks again!

Well, if you're at university, just look for a store run by the university and ask if they can order WinXP for you. I know that my dad (college professor) and my bro can do that here and get huge discounts (LightWave full for $350).... so that's your best bet.

I'm not sure if the place I linked you to has international shipping, but you just fax or email a copy of your college ID or transcript or whatever. Not too shabby... :p

if you format your hard drive, can you install winxp with just the upgrade cd? or do you have to install a previous version of windows first?

The Baron 08-28-02 09:47 PM

oh yeah, it's upgrade, isn't it. :p

You pop in a Win98/ME/2000/whatever CD, and it goes "Mkay. Put XP back in, foo'."

In order for the upgrade to run, it must detect a previous version of Windows...Personally, I have never been a fan of the "upgrade" version....I would much rather start from scratch and have everything start out on the same page.
