since I'm a CIT major working towards my MCSE (among other things), I'm able
to get copies of most versions of windows, programming tools, etc, etc,
etc... it's actually a pretty sweet deal... they give you a paper license
and you get a burned copy of the software... and it's all legal (which DOES
take some of the fun out of it!)...

i think it's something like that, but i always understood it that if you have
one copy of windows, you could install it on one computer, but it didn't
matter which one as long as it was only on that one... then again, i'm
definately NOT a lawyer and I get bored after the "End User License
Agreement" heading on the EULA! :^ )

actually, believe it or not, I think they actually follow the licensing
policies fairly closely... not quite like it was back in the guys dorms of
Tabor! ; ^ )
