vista an my unregistered

I have an unregistered version of XP at the moment. When Vista comes out, and if I purchase it, will my system become legal and registered or should I perhaps buy a legal copy of XP and be done with it.
Thanking you.

Is your version of XP unregistered or pirated?

It will not validate so I guess it is pirated

If your XP is "Unregistered" it will become unusable every thirty days,therefore,as Vista isn't due for release until Dec 2006? you will have to have registered/activated it long before it arrives.I would buy XP now and be done.

"buy a legal copy of XP and be done with it"

Got it in one.

OR switch to Linux - a free download of Xandros might be what you are looking for!
