You can preorder your copy of Windows XP today from CompUSA today. I went ahead and picked up my full version of XP Pro tonight for about $315.00 (including tax and shipping charges).
Some of you probably thought I was joking when I said I was planning on buying XP. Afterall why would an "unofficial" beta tester bother paying for a piece of software?
Because its damn good - period. Also its tough to make a living as a software developer if you spend your free time stealing other peoples software. Think about the irony.
