Yup. There are some sites out there tough that allow you to download if you pay or something like that. I think. And they give you a legit serial.

LOL, haha. Anyways, yes, it's perfectly safe. I have MSDN account and download Microsoft OS's like crazy. Thank goodness for broadband too. None of the files are corrupt and it's like buying it from the store.

To get the distro wanted, go to www.linuxiso.org

If you want to try ReactOS, a windows binary based OS, try http://www.reactos.org/xhtml/en/index.html

If you want windows CE 5.0, Windows XP Embedded or Windows 2003 eval, go to www.microsoft.com
