I am thinking of reformating my PC and starting fresh, but I do not have my Win XP cd (let alone my winXP key). So the option of buying online and downloading without having to pay for shipping (or full price) seemed intriguing. From what was described, the key was part of the installation so every time you wished for a new key, you would need to re-download the whole OS again. We were on the conversation of building systems to sell, so he mentioned it as a way of getting copies of winXP easily to install on new systems.
If anyone has any information regarding the matter (or of a legit site where I could purchase winXP and a corresponding key [pro preferably]) please reply!
Thank you for your time.
