Someone burned me a copy of Windows XP about 2 years ago. His friend burned him a copy from the company that he works for. I was told it was a corporate edition (whatever that is) and to not register it online or otherwise.
As of right now, things work fine, i.e., I still get updates, etc. But with this new licensing thing with Microsoft, I am worried that I will have a problem installing it on the new system I am building.
My question is: Will I have to spend the $135 for a licensed OEM copy of Windows XP from Newegg, or will the copy of Windows XP that I have install without problems and continue to work once it is installed?

Yeah, legal is good. Even if you use it on all your computers at home, you can always get them to activate it over the phone, just say you reformatted your computer. And you have a recipt to prove that you bought it.
