I'll see your loose language and raise you one. I didn't pay for XP,
it was a freebie from my hardware pusher, and still properly licensed.
BTW that was an upgrade from ME not XP, which has me thinking, if XP
home is the most basic version available here in English North America,
what kind of upgrade are you referring to? :) (I'm taking the XPsp2 as
being the equivalent of XP, just with their security and bug fixes
thrown in.)
