And if so, what is the question?
You need a copy of it, that is licensed to you.

"sorry windows 98 and 95 run 4 ever as long u never register them"

That doesn't matter for the case, that using any windows version without license is illegal.

However, you may contact Microsoft to get a new CD for your existing license.

So are you looking for a 98 installation cd? Check ebay. Or can someone burn you a copy? Then use your key.

"using any windows version without license is illegal"

He has a license, he just doesn't have a disc. It's not illegal to make a copy of a Windows CD.

What? Am I missing something here? He only needs the media. Microsoft could care less if he copies it, borrows it, steals it, finds it, downloads it, or buys it.

Whatever method he uses to get the media, he violates nothing Microsoft cares about.

Forget response #4.
The case here isn't whether it's legal or not.
Btw.: I mentioned, that using any Windows version without license is illegal.

I can't see something wrong on this.

But all in all I haven't expected, that this would cause this kind of discussion.

So simply ignore Response #4.

Oh it pops up every now and the. Here's one from several years ago:

http://www.computing.net/answers/wi...

I think software licensing should be treated like new pharmaceuticals. The company that develops a new drug gets exclusive rights to it for something like 10 or 15 years to recoup their R & D costs. After that they lose that privelege and other drug companies can manufacture it as generic.

So let microsoft sell their software for 5 years or whatever until they retire it and move to the next version. During that time they recoup their development costs by selling the items for hundreds of dollars when it's costing them pennies to burn each disk.

After that period of time, people can buy and sell the software themselves. Microsoft could still be the only developer since there is a market for used software and not for used drugs as in my example above.

Besides, as I mentioned in the link above, there is a definite advantage to microsoft in allowing a marketplace for their old software.

You're not really green until you're soylent green.

Well microsoft doesn't need to sell or support it in order for you to buy it and put it on your computer. You just have to look in other places for it. And there are sites where you can allegedly download it. There are sites with product keys if you've lost yours or gotten a disk without a key.

But all you need to do is be willing to spends a few (very few) dollars and buy it on ebay. Why can't you do that? You've gotten a boatload of help here. What do you expect--do you want someone to come over to your house and personally hand you a copy of 98?

OK, look, if you honestly can't find a 98 cd I'll burn you a copy and mail it. Send me a private message if that's what you want to do.

Copying any windows CD is LEGAL. You must own a MS winblows license key to use them.

Grab a bit torrent client (utorrent) and search for "Windows 98SE torrent" in Google.
