    Open the System control panel. Under Registered To, check the PID

    55274-640-0000xxx-xxxxx

    If those numbers match, its probably Devils0wn and illegal.

    My first Major clue was how it was called Windows exP in the cover...

    Seriously tho, if the cdkey is FCKGW.... check the retailer you got it from.

    You guys may laugh but I know a guy at a flea market that bought Xp with the intention to sell copies...

    I also know another person that was sold a cd as a Corporate version... He was told that the company that origianly bought the licenses only need 4 and there was 16 left on the cd...

    This is not a dumb question...

    HERE'S the official information...
