Some poor soul in one of these threads was stuck on WinMe. So I'm posting this to point out that for students at a college or university (or someone who signs up for a class to get cheap software;) ) you can get WindowsXP Pro for $50. (It actually went up--I got mine last semester and it was only $25:)

Needless to say it's without any documentation (just like the commercial version:mad: ) but it's still quite inexpensive, especially for XP Pro)

If i'd study computer science instead of IT i'd get MS OSes for free :mad:
Although MS says "The MSDN Academic Alliance is an annual membership program for technical departments in the area of Computer Science, Engineering, and Information Systems."
Have to check back if i really can't get it when i've time...

Maybe some people here are students too and their university distributes MSDN Academic Alliance Software.
