Purchasing Windows XP Home Edition RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello! I have a question about purchasing Windows XP.

    I'm currently using an MSDN AA copy of XP Pro and I want to purchase Windows XP Home Edition SP3. I know that Retail versions are not available already, and OEM's come with a new PC, so I contacted MS for advice (by e-mail), and they confirmed that I could not buy OEM or Retail, but explained that there are OEM DSP versions available that could be sold seperately and gave me a list with MS Partners. I've contacted several MS partners but they declined to sell me XP Home OEM DSP , but offered the Genuine Advantage Kit that includes XP Pro SP2. What's wrong? Can I actually buy XP Home ?
