    Oh, I have the pirated stuff, in fact I spent over 50 blank cd's and quite a few months "developing" my pirated xp pro into a fully automated unattended setup that installs SP1, a custom "pirated xp" logo screen, and also preloads tons of software and programs, as well as more screensavers and wallpapers. But when I build for customers I need to keep it legit. As far as I am concerned, M$ is way too expensive...if they lowered their prices I would install legal copies on all my stuff. But not for the $100-$160 that it goes for....let alone the over $300 for Office..... F-dat! lol.

    and that is why i do the Action Subscription pack..$299 per year; you get 10 licences of XP Pro, Office Pro, Project, Visio, FrontPage, Infopath, Mappoint, etc. plus single licences of all their server products (Outlook, Advanced Server, Web Server, SQL Server, Biztalk, etc.) they are also updated every quarter by M$

    saves me from going the pirated route anymore.
