This is weird.
I am on Windows ME (i know it sucks) and am keen to upgrade to XP.
What I find stange is that the price I have been quoted for an upgrade version is dearer than the price if I buy XP for a firsrttime install.
$ 240 NZ as against $ 180
The only differenc is that the upgrade version allows e to keep all of my applications.
I think I would be better off to do a complete new install on a formatted hard drive.
Surely as a regsistered user of ME I should be entitled to some sort of "trade-in" Like with a car !
I contributed to Microsoft's coffers when I purchased ME and do not see why I should pay the same price as a new comer to computers buying Windows for the first time.
What do you think ?
PS I am sorely tempted to d/l a copy of XP or to go Linux as Microsoft's policy in this area annoys me.
