Purchase a product key? RRS feed

  • Question

  • a friend of mine has a MSDN subscription and made me a copy of windows Vista RTM.  He did not give me a product key to use.  He told me the only reason why he gave me a copy is that MS will allow me to buy a product key.  Is this true?  So I have the final edition of Vista Ultimate and I want to know if I'll have to buy the whole package or if I can just buy a product key directly from MS.

    Thanks

  • Please destroy the Vista DVD your friend gave you.  MSDN subscribers are prohibited from making illegal copies or lending MSDN software to anyone who does not have a current MSDN subscription.

  • This is the reason I use a FREE Linux operating system, no screaming from MS to distroy anything, let alone pay an absurd amount of money for a product key. GO Linux
