    XP activation confusion

    The whole point to activation introduced by Microsoft was so that it's product could not be activated on a different machine - preventing copying. If your laptop still functions, then your already using that CD's licence. :(

    Are XP Home Upgrade and OEM product Keys Interchangable?
