Thanks. I'm always worried about the looks to good to be true, and backup software and such. Both of my PC guys had nothing to say as in they didn't know anything right or wrong so I thought I should put it out to a larger group. -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces-dmccullough=garnethill.com at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces-dmccullough=garnethill.com at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Michael Pemberton Sent: Thursday, July 08, 2004 11:15 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] OEM CDs Dan McCullough wrote: > I hope this isnt offtopic, if it is please let me know and I will supply > a tip. > > The only reason I am asking is that I cannot find any reports or > anything other then purchase information while googling for OEM CD's, > like http://qualityoemsoft.biz, I'm asking because my dad is interested > in purchasing a copy and I warned him, but then couldn't find anything > substancal. > > Anyone > > dan Here are a few tips that the site is probably selling pirate or "grey market" units: The site appears to be rushed together. The navigation links that form the "Quick Store Index" are all linked to the *current* page. This means they only work on the main page. On any other page, they just just fail. As a legal requirement, OEM software may only be packaged with related hardware. I remember a case a while ago, where a company sold you a $10 mouse to then offer a reduced price on the software being sold. Be careful when buying from someone who doesn't have a phone number of postal address. Hopefully this helps. -- Michael Pemberton evolt at mpember.net.au -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
