Marty should stop all the Pirates on this forum and we should respect the law.
Siger Tronic, 6 Pickstock Street in Belize City, phone 223 36 00 and others sell the original DVD with Windows Vista.
It a very bad custom here, that all the movies and the most of the program's are pirate copies.
AC, mspencer and Tracker normally you only get the key with the original VISTA DVD, or if a OEM version is installed on your computer.
As right as you are with the first three statements the last one can't be applied across the board. I mean I hate pirating but I love accurate facts...You can't bust on AC for not having the CD's...most computers have a key on the sticker somewhere on the back, top, side, etc... somewhere... but just because you have a key doesn't mean it will work with the install DVD's/CD's you have (i.e.- Version conflicts (see post above) or what if you want just Windows without all of the manufacturers crap they load the machine with these days) I mean what if your pc crashes but you don't have the cd's/dvd's. You can purchase legitimate keys online with out the dvd/cd. And just to keep you up to date, with some of Microsoft's 2010 software, you'll be able to walk into your local (at least in the States) electronics store (Best Buy, Office Depot, any authorized reseller) and buy your license key only...kind of like buying a gift card, just the key without the cd...
On a lighter note....when AC starts asking for just a license key because he has install DVD's/CD's, then
you can start busting on him... Like I said...I hate pirating but I love accurate facts...
By the way, do you have any mp3's on your computer?
