Default coincedence or good marketing?

Well today my mom bought a brand new oem LG dvd burner and inside, I found a windows vista install cd...completely legal with all that shiny shit on it.

do u think someone just forgot it there or does LG suddenly give away discs of windows Vista?

ya, probably just lucky someone may have bought it just to install vista since you need a dvd drive, then forgot to take it out when they returned it...

if it does, then i'd say keep it. if not, whats the point of having the CD? (hoping you don't go out to get a pirate lisense.)
