Hi All this has no doubt been asked so many times in the past but i am absolutly confused. I currently have a PC running Win 98 Se i want to go to XP, without buying a new PC. What exactly do i buy? I dont think i want to upgrade but i am still left with 2 choices, OEM or Retail? what the hell is the difference? as there is a big difference in price. What are the advantages / disadvantages of eack one . What ever i read i get conflicting advice, I am not the most PC litterate person so i would appreciate any advice in plain english. Many thanks, Mike
...they appear to be sticking to the 'must be with hardware' bit as they are flogging it with a hard disk cable.
I'd also be surprised if many system builders were buying their XP via Misco (although I guess maybe small, high street shop type builders might be), although I guess end users are counted as system builders if they are building a brand new PC? I'm still not clear on that point as FE's blog seems to say that home users aren't system builders, but what is the definition of a system builder? Perhaps this is for another thread of discussion.
