My XP CDs with 'no key' are going for postage costs only!
I don't think I can be bothered charging for them!

Saying that, I think I'm out now, as I've had interest by PM from a few, so looks like I may have flogged all the non-branded ones.

I do, however, have a Dell XP Pro OEM and a Fujitsu-Siemens XP Pro OEM if anybody's interested? Yet again, will cost postage or can collect from me at the next event.

No question Pro is stable and the best core OS , Vista has to much window dressing and redundant code... Window 7 is good once setup.

BIGGEST drawback on XP Pro these days is the lack of DX10, unless using hacked dx10 which is not very stable. Compare a DX9 game to a DX10 one and you realise that Microsoft are eventually going to push XP users over wether they want to or not.

All else fails Im sure I have a pro CoA lurking around somewhere.

Don't worry mate! I didn't think for one minute that you were 'price driving' ..... just that I think a CD only is worth bugger all without the licence agreement and COA/CD-key

No question Pro is stable and the best core OS , Vista has to much window dressing and redundant code... Window 7 is good once setup.
Well, XP is more stable than Vista or Win7, but I wouldn't say XP is the best Windows version ever created.
I would say that Windows 2000 was better than XP, but today, it's no longer a viable option, leaving XP as being the best 'current' Windows OS.

I'm glad you've said that .... I've NEVER had Windows 3.11 crash ever except for once, which was caused by me using incorrect network card drivers.
Win311 is solid!
