Thanks Boobah one problem though mate the ones I do up are in the main for my work colleagues and their positions as enrolled nurses and assistant nurses means they don't have the means to lash out MS's outrageous prices or the cost of shop techies.
Which leaves me as a semi savvy trawling around to find the best deal I can or work around it somehow for them. It's really galling that some can get it through their workplace for a nominal fee while us "commoners'" as one "nice person" put it - have to pay the full up front cost.
Personally I think it would be magnanimous of MS to let individuals on low wages / pensions and the like get OS's for a reduced price. But knowing what greed does I can't see that happening - can you?
That aside it also annoys me that Mr.Gates can be very philanthropic with some things while the can't quite haves of this world have to go without.
Don't get me wrong because I can pay the full price albeit begrudgingly and get the OEM when I build - but not when I refurbish my friends machines for them.
