Their website is in Malaysia.
Their about us page doesn't list their address or contact info.
From the FAQ:

I'd be very suspicious of software that you can not register.
The EULA for Microsoft products requires that the COA and all documentation be transfered with the software.
A lot of what they purchased from "companies that have gone out of business" could also be OEM versions, which can't be resold. (at least, not without the PC it was installed on)
A search of Adobe's Partner finder does not list them
Cnet Certified? They don't appear on shopper.cnet.com

Some interesting info here:

It is a scam. I'd avoid even visiting the site; it could very well be hosting malware.

The phone number did not appear in a reverse lookup on Whitepages.com

McAfee SiteAdvisor user reviews list the site as a scam/possible malware source.

Generally if it seems to good to be true, it is.

Vista requires a license key. They make no mention of how they will get this to you.

Also note that the English on the site is very poor. Despite the professional appearance, the grammar and usage is very lackluster.

EDIT: sorry for repeating much of what you said, TheOutcaste. I began my post before and finished after you did.

I WANT TO BUY MICROSOFT WINDOWS VISTA ULTIMATE WHICH IS CHEAPER (99.90)

http://download-community.com/

ANY HELP ME FIND OUT WHO ARE THIS PEOPLE? ARE THEY LEGAL? SO THAT I CAN'T WORRY ABOUT BEING SCAM.
Is it legal? Doubt it. They sending you a disk?

basically what theoutcaste and hulkster (damn, you've beaten to the punch like thrice today :) ) said; it's a scam.

go to amazon.com and buy a legit copy. Whatever they got, even if it is vista, ain't legal.

Remember sites that sell via the internet should always have an appropriate certification from the manufacturers. If they dont have a certificate or https:// or any security affiliation then DONT BUY FROM THEM!
