Discount software for students is this myth?

Post by Etertyexeld »

Sorry, maybe this question is off topic for this board, but I hope someone may clear it out for me. rnI have heard that OEM software are much cheaper than retail version and after digging over the web I have found software online store that proposed many different cheap computer software. What do you think if this safe to purchase the cheap software online? Can you share your thoughts what need I look over when start purchase? rn rnThanks!

OEM is usually Ok. Depends on the software and sometimes it comes without a warranty or support. Usually, that's not a big deal because you're getting it at a great price. You just need to make sure that it's not ripped off :P

I purchased an OEM Windows Xp that was fine but could only be installed on one computer (duhhh).

What's the software you're thinking of and what's the website?
