Default Question about Windows XP PRO...

My friend says that you can use the same cd key on multiple comps. Is this true? I know you can't use the same cd key more than once with xp home, but he says he has used that same cd key for pro on multiple computers and its always worked. Is this possible?

you can put windows XP Pro on diff comps but you cannot activate each computers XP Pro






of course, there are ways to get around the activation without the golden key =D you'll just have to be a microsoft employee to figure it out

Well, two of my friends are saying that you can. One of them says he has used the same key on like 5 other comps and they can use it fine. Then my other friend says that a friend of his gave him his cd key and now my friend and his brother use it, so I dunno.
