i found a website in my travels which is offering microsoft xp pro sp2 for 59.00 us dollars (www.cdsfu.com). i was wondering if this is going to be a legal working version or am i going to get burned?
Thanks in advance for the answer

Thank you for bringing this site to our attention. Microsoft sells OEM software only to original equipment manufacturers (such as Dell or HP) and only for pre-installation on machines they are selling. The End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) specifically prohibits sale of this software separate from the OEM PC. Microsoft sofware also is sold with a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) regardless of whether it is retail or OEM software (see http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/default.aspx for more information).
I would not recommend purchasing software from this site as I think it is highly likely you would get burned.

What they are selling is as phony as a three dollar bill.
