    would you trust them when they DO NOT include a license to the product sold, because it is cheaper to do it that way.

    quoted from their FAQ. "We offer the software for downloading only, it means that you do not receive a fancy package, a printed manual and license that actually aggregate the largest part of the retail price."

    Were you able to register it successfully? It is my understanding that the XP products must be registered, or they will cease to function after 30 days. I suspect your friend will be purchasing XP again in about three weeks, unless it can be registered with Microsoft. Please keep us posted as I would love to get some software packages at their prices!
