Re: Most economic way to buy windows xp ?

I've purchased 5 W7 Ultimates ( 3 installed AND verified ) and 2 Office 2007 Pros ( both installed AND working ).

You asked for alternatives, they were given.

Choice is yours.

I would prefer that as proof so that when i need support in the future and would also serve as evidence towards legit ownership.

Please do let me know.
I activated these 2 Win 7 installs online, not by phone. I have activated many other MS OS installs by phone and they did not ask for any personal info. It was automated (touch-tone or voice).

MCMD, whether your actually known to this dealer or indirectly pedalling his product, or whatever, why dont you keep ur smart *** remarks to yourself. Nobody asked for them and your damn opinions. At least not me. So watch your mouth.

Plainman007, whatever your problem is, you brought it with you. Learning that geniusbuy's Paypal telephone number is bogus is just not that surprising- that's all I meant to convey in my post. How you interpreted it into something that I'm in business with geniusbuy is a mystery, but no matter.

My friend, I've got a long fuse, so your threat to "watch my mouth" has zero effect- you ain't worth it. I'll make sure to steer clear of you in the future.

And you ASSUME your worth it. Yeah. Like you saying this make you really higher than all of us here. And remember 'I' requested you to stay clear. At least from me. And dont try to mock people in a technical discussion.
