$10 to MS will get you a 64 bit disk. :)

I just downloaded a torrent of Vista 64 back when I used Vista because your 32 bit serial key works for 64 bit. Personally, I see purchasing software as purchasing the serial key, Direct2Drive and Steam just reaffirm that belief.

Anyways, I use Ubuntu 8.04 as my main OS, however I also have it dualboot/Virtual Machine XP Pro. I never game on my computer anymore because my 360 has better graphics than my laptop could ever have.

I voted XP, but I actually have two drives. The main drive has XP Pro and the secondary drive has Ubuntu, Hardy Heron 8.04 LTS 64-bit installed on it. I would be using Ubuntu solely if I wasn't a gamer. I don't like using programs to allow game playing.

No option for dual boots? :(

I dual boot Vista Home Premium 64 and XP 32. I spend most of my time in Vista though because I'm trying to give it another fair shot and so far I'm liking it a lot more after a hardware upgrade and the addition of SP1. But I still fall back to XP for a few bits and pieces that don't work for me in Vista.


:withstupid: same here

anyways Vista for me

I still see it as illegally downloading software :ph34r:

Although you paid for the key you did not pay for that software copy

Way I see it is he didn't want to pay M$ $10 to send him one in the mail. He still legally obtained a license however. Honestly tho $10 isn't that much....

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:
