That would be your best bet, I agree. That is, if someone will buy it. I skipped Vista, so I know very little about it, except that all of my friends who had Vista complained and most downgraded (some illegally) to XP Pro. That OS has been a strong seller on eBay for years now. I just checked today and people are still giving $230 for Pentium 3 laptops with 20GB hard drives with Win 2K Pro and $280 for Pentium 4 laptops with 40GB drives with XP Pro SP3. Veedaz, can you believe that? For just $100 more, you could have a nice Compaq with 4GB RAM, 320GB drive and much more. These above mentioned laptops only had 256MB RAM. With the deals today, why are the people paying that much cash for 6 to 7 year old laptops? But kicken, I hope you can sell your OS. The problem is that people are willing to give more cash for XP than Vista. Best of luck to you, you will enjoy Windows 7 once you get it.
