Windows 7: Counterfeit OS

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

If they feel like spending the money, sure. I'm not aware of that ever happening. I do know a few people who bought Windows 7 on Ebay when it was released, against my advice, and ended up with counterfiet copies. Once they provided proof, such as Ebay links and PayPal receipts, they were given a new, valid key on the spot.

It may be also worth looking at the differences between versions before you purchase.
Ultimate VS. Home Premium for example.

The large majority of users will find Home Premium offers everything they need, and will also save you some money.

This of course isn't the case for everyone, as some will need those extra features. But you may find that the extras Ultimate offers are things you have no need for.

Only you can decide that for yourself.
