    We just got raided last month for copywrite violations (XP). Durring the inspection we were able to show the origional business lic for all keys installed. Allways keep the origionals and ANY email traffic with M$ customer service. So, yes the Lic is still enforced. Contact M$ customer service about getting the legal software.

    I think you can buy legit copies of XP Pro for like $50 now? I'd say cut your losses and lose the risk and just buy legit copies.

    You can even download any XP Version for free at torrent sites(if your ISP supports torrents) or buy XP Product Keys on ebay but it's all too risky. I'd rather spend a few extra bucks and get myself a clean legit version and free myself of the worry that I might be caught one day.
