Does anyone know where I can find a new copy of Windows XP for under $75?

I've been watching it, but the prices (naturally) skyrocket as the auction is closing.

I'm waiting for that nice BUYNOW of $60.00...

Download XP off a torrent site. I'm sorry, music you shouldn't download but applications from Microsoft are fucking rip-offs. Microsoft Office 2007 is 40% more expensive in the UK than America. I am not paying £350 for a standard version of Office.

i would advise against downloading it (illegally). microsoft has been doing more to prevent piracy of their software. music is easier to download because the music companies dont care as much as microsoft does. although i know its a rip off buying it retail, i would also suggest ebay.

I was lucky with my PC.
My brother bought a laptop so had a DELL XP version of windows (which is pretty much exactly the same thing as normal XP)
And when I was piecing my computer together I had problems with the case so my dad brought an old case home from work, and that case had one of those stickers on it with an XP serial number on it which I could use.

XP?.-....HOME?!?!?!?!----at least get the pro edition...
However...it's too late. Microsoft will stop the Xp production shortly cuz Vista's coming out.

The only real difference is the cost. XP Professional was designed for corporations and business, not for home use. It's just pointless extra expense. Just because it's called XP 'Professional' doesn't mean you're "1337" if you use it...

In another Vista thread it said it needed 2 gig of RAM and a dual core processor to work.

I don't think Microsoft is going to end production of XP seeing as most computers aren't packed with that much performance.
yo.

The big versions will probably need that, but the home basic edition of Vista is practically the same as XP home, just with a different look. so yeah, it probably wil start fading out.

^ No. It needs 512 MB and at least 800 MHz to work. But yeah, it's pretty hefty just for an OS.

My dad got a copy of Vista business, which he let me put on his old (my old, old) machine. It has a 2.4 GHz P4, 512 RAM and 128 MB NVidia GeForce FX5200. Windows Aero managed to run, but there was ~ 70% memory usage. It's insane.

belive it or not...that u you need a dual CPU and 2 gig RAM is not true. Only thing is that if your graphics card is not strong enough...the vista will disable the technologie acquired from looking glass ( special graphics function)...otherwise vista'll work on every, not sooo old, pc-----and try xp home once....and then install the pro edition....I almost think that ya will change opinion.

It's a few years old, and what I'm on now is more designed as a gaming rig


Well, the spec seems pretty standard for a non-gaming PC, maybe a little dated. Still, I wouldn't call it old, old. If you want a PC for gaming, then yes, computers like mine are complete shite.

I'd like a gaming PC, but they're too costly and I don't play games enough to spend that sort of money.
