Patio, academically priced software is for students and educators only.  Most college bookstores ask for proof of status (student or faculty ID) before approving purchase.  Anyone not meeting the requirements is an illegal user.

But, is Fordtruckmaniac a student?  I don't think so.

I have came across a new Windows 2000 Pro. It has the startup guide, COA and product key.

It is Dell branded.

Would it work on this home built computer?

    No, I am not doing anything improper.

    I am too old to fool around with getting in trouble.

    Some OEM discs look for the appropriate maker's BIOS before they will install but you will know this early on if you attempt it.

    If you have the materials already go ahead and try.

    Update-

    I got the Windows 2000 SP4 installed in my sisters computer about a week ago.

    Seems to work good.

    I had never seen Y2K before, just heard of it. Its seems a good mix of XP and 98/ME.

    She is jumping up to 512MB of the PC800 memory. I am ordering her that here shortly.

    Thanks,

    I am running Windows XP SP2 on a 300Mhz/128MB RAM Compaq Laptop.

    I suppose it runs quite well for something that slow.  :)

    Windows 2000 is NOT windows 98/ME. It may look like it, but it functions differently.

    Well this would have been a better way to phrase it.

    Its seems a good visual mix of XP and 98/ME.


    I get that its not 98/ME. Thats why I got it for my sister.

    In my opinion it is the most stable OS that Gates and co have produced to date...
