Cheap OEM software

  tim.h 19:33 14 Apr 2004

I am currently receiving more and more spam advertising very cheap OEM software. The prices are very tempting but does anyone know if any of these offers are genuine and safe.

You pay your money and take your chances, but personally I wouldn't.

More details would be useful such as websites, software etc.

There was a news article recently which mentioned Russian / far away system builders offering OEM copies of software without a hardware sale contrary to their licence, It is probably very suspect to send money/credit card details to a company that is prepared to break their licensing terms. What if they are prepared to break banking and credit card regulations too?

I'd say don't tolerate or encourage spam in any way. There are many legitimate companies & sites selling OEM sw & you can buy directly from them - click here (Searched 'pages from the UK'). Ebay is a good site to check too.
