Default Windows XP Worth Buying?

Is it worth buying xp or using a pirated copy that is missing a bunch of files (now that I actually asked the question it ALMOST seems stupid)?

you can buy cheap ones.. like $50 from online stores, legit. pirated + missing files = wrong.

When in doubt, shell it out. You can never be absolutely sure about a pirated copy, especially if you think files are missing.

As an educated TF member, i should say: buy it, but that may be because Microsoft is holding a gun to my head.

Buy it. You can get a student discount thru www.newegg.com that makes Pro only like $85, not a bad deal.

Look pirating is illegal and you got guts to say you have a pirated CD or can obtain a pirated CD. And yes XP is worth the buy as it is the only windows besides Server 2003 and Server 2005 that you can count on in 1 years time (besides future releases).
