I know alot has been posted on this topic but it seems as though the factors are always changing and I wanted to try to get a current consensus on the topic.
I am building a brand new system. I have everything picked out except for muy OS and Case!
I want XP PRO (NON upgrade)
What makes the retail version better?
I have read that with the retail version u can reuse it if you change mobo's etc and w/ OEM u cannot.
I have also heard that now u cant even reuse the retail version.
What if I f@*%Up my install or want to reinstall a few times testing partions etc. is one version better than the other in these instances?
What if I put my new system together and find that nothing works right after a week, month etc. would I beable to change mys sytem (mobo, CPU etc) and reuse the OEM version?
(why is this so cheap)?
Is this XP PRO not an actual rull retail version and just a license to use in addition to an existing paid for version?http://www.edirectsoftware.com/produ...oduct_id=16134
Again, I am trying to sort this out but have decided to post.
Thanks to anyone for replying some helpful info!
