hehe, If I can say one thing about the box, it that this is my first legit copy of an OS since '91... so that's one advantage of buying a box, I guess.
Watch what you say on the internet! They can, and probably would like to, track you down.
I would, and have, never used or sold any pirated software, including operating systems. Sure, it costs more, but when I explain it to the customers that their computers are legal, they are grateful, and come back for more!
Dont like Bill Gates' operating systems? Here's my favorite alternative, which I'm still learning about:
I have two newer laptops, one with the amd, and one with intel. The intel crushes the amd one for speed. In my desktop I run intel, and it does get a tad hotter then an amd, but it is faster, and seems to be more reliable. I dont have a desktop amd anymore because the last one i had fried, I tried intel and stuck with it.

A good fist fight never hurts anyone... except my opponent.
Me and my buddy argued about intel vs amd, so he finally started readin on the new core2duo and decided it was better then the amd. I know this will prob be a repost or everyone here has seen it but I just had to post the link of this very old video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgOmMAasqto
Good link NASA. Come on Barcelona. AMD has had problems before (mid 90's) And recovered. I believe they will be in the game a long time. I have bench tested both chips in identical environments. And Intel always over heated and failed before AMD.
Intel can't take the heat. I believe that AMD may be slower getting there new chip out. But when It comes it is always better. This because they make sure it is right before marketing.

I met the president of AMD Friday. I repaired a cabinet in his lake house. He had the newest top of the line AMD unit in his home. Its liquid cooled & the biggest home unit I've ever seen. Its internals are at -8 degrees. He claims their new units are the fastest gaming units on the market. I will definately look at AMD for my next computer.

I prefer AMD, I have run their chips since the pre-Pentium days. I used to make fun of a friend of mine, he had a P100, I had a 486-100 AMD, and just flat out ran circles around him on just about everything.

when the P4 first came out, the AMD killed it, but it was really a software issue. in that the software devs needed to right code to take advatage of the "think ahead" that intel was using. basically chips thought 9 moves, and the P4 was like 25.....if it guessed wrong (sw code issues), it was slow to recover. Once that was fixed they were equal. For most it wont matter, but AMD is usually the pick for high end gaming machines. The Macs are still the standard for hihg end graphic use....AMD would be my pick, but then I OC mine, and Intel tends to run at the edge of it's advertized speed, where AMD leave a little in reserve. It is a pickem though...
