Using the COA sticker to get a free copy of XP
Can it be done?
I just bought a Thinkpad T42 with no OS, thinking that "Oh, there might be a a few things in Linux that will require tweaking, but it'll be all good once I work them out". I think I was wrong. I'm running Ubuntu, and, it just isn't polished enough imo. I'm having issues with sound. You tweak and tweak and tweak, then you go and install a new program and everything gets phucked up. There's that and then just about a half dozen other little annoying things. Like fonts.
Anyway, this laptop I have has a COA sticker for xp on the bottom of it. Is there a way I can use that to somehow get a legal copy of xp onto this computer. Or, is there any at all of getting xp for free or next to it?
