    I came across this website:

    http://www.quatro-oem.com

    The prices seem great and seems like a decent selection of stuff.

    But I am wondering if it is too good to be true.

    Has anyone had any any exprience with this website/organization?

    I was thinking about getting a copy or 2 of Windows XP Pro.

    The FAQ says:

    Most of the software is offered for downloading in SFX-archive files. SFX-archive (self-extract) is an EXE file, thus it does not require any additional software on your PC to be opened. Some products also contain ISO versions of installation files. Such files are for burning CD copies. ISO files require special CD-burning software to be used.


    So am I going to have problems making a disk so I can load a new computer with XP?

    Any input/feedback/advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.
