I was not aware you could do a direct upgrade from 2K to XP.

@Superdave-
You can do a upgrade from 95 to XP if you wish. As long as you use the upgrade version.

@Vernong-
As long as you have your serial present you can just download another copy of the disc from the many places on the net and use your Serial.

The only way to tell if it is legit or not is to try it out. If it activates then it is legit. If not then change it and try a new one.

If it isnt legit you could just call M$ and have then activate it for you.

Links for what? A XP Torrent? I am sure that would break a few rules here.

It is because pr0n is their biggest $$ maker. The more pr0n ads they have the more $$ they get.
