Found this which says there is a lot of illegal stuff on it.

Part from that never heard of it.

But hope this helps, where is it for sale then?
1995 300tdi 90 rebuilt and on the road (but still a project)
1992 Pajero SWB 2.5 Auto (failed its MOT and for sale if you want it)

Not Official
Not Licenced

£1000 fine if you get caught
£10000 for anyone selling it.

XP is not THAT expensive, go buy it
I must confess the the activities of the UK governments for the past couple of years have been watched with frank admiration and amazement by Lord Vetinari. Outright theft as a policy had never occured to him.

ooo never heard of it. I like xp, ive never paid for any windows operating system you seen the price!!! considering nearly every computer in the world has it you would think it would be pretty cheap. i would buy it from the shop if it was £20.

Don't use it its fully of nasty things like spyware and ad ware,

Its a slipstreamed version of XP some people have put together and add differnt themes and dodgy software to usually found on most the torrent sites.

Stay away from it   buy / download Vista
Thanks,

Unless you need all the software thats pre-installed and the make over ( which you can do seperatley anyway ) stick with your running Xp, Vista is good but it's very cpu/memory demanding if you use all the screen effects and the sidebar ( which you can also add to Xp if you want ).

Hope this helps

Stick with XP, or go to Linux/Mac. Even MS seem to be accepting that Vista is a horrible bloated mess, as they've extended the time for which XP will be supported and are now openly talking about the replacement for Vista (which will supposedly be a leaner faster thing).
