Purchase XP license via Ebay?
I am retired and have been running W2k for many years. Recently built a new desktop system for which I licensed Win7-64 HP OEM. I don't like it, and, given an alternative, likely will run it little or none.
My new hardware does not support W2k, but it supports XP. To my knowledge, the only source (for me) for an XP license is Ebay. I am familiar with "full" and "OEM" versions, but some of the finer points of valid licensing I understand not.
Does anyone know what they are doing with XP licenses on Ebay? Some would be valid and some not? How to tell the difference? Several list COA and some prices look to be in line with XP retail prices about a year ago.
I have no desire to run software that is not properly licensed.
