No it's not legit in my opinion. Surprised anyone would think it was actually.

Just look at the FAQ. It states that the software is available for download only.
Microsoft have never allowed the sale of Windows software by download only. That should ring alarm bells.

There is no physical address (I think they actually operate in Eastern Europe), so that also should cause major concern.

If it appears too good to be true, it usually is.

I suspect this old adage applies in this case. :)

Actually Microsoft DO allow the sale of Software through download (I have VS.NET and XP Pro through this method) but you have to be VERY carefull to verify it is a genuine product. My advice would be to check with Microsoft first, same goes for all the other publishers. In fact you may want to bring this site to their attention (although I'm sure they are already aware of it).

That is very interesting essjay, I can understand VS.NET but I was unaware that XP Operating system was ever sold by MS as a download.

Can you please give me a link to where this is for sale, from a Microsoft site?
