    Nope! Office is fine So are Server licenses. Just XP you can't get on volume without upgrading.

    Re: Windows Licences

    OEM lives and dies with the PC it was first used on (as has been said before) For new machines, its cheaper to get XP Pro OEM straight off (~£90) VS paying for say XP home and then upgrading it to XP Pro using the upgrade licence. Now if you can source some 98 OEMs for monkeys that are brand new then that sounds an excellent idea, but just make sure they are not COAs that have been ripped off some skipped PCs.
