DIRECTRON, a "gold" member of Microsoft's system builder programme, is selling OEM copies of Windows XP X64.
There are one or two condiitons applying to the sale, which its web site said ends on the 6th of May, or earlier if it sells out.

You have to buy them in multiples of three, or buy it with a system, or buy it with what Directron dubs "any hardware". It says you can be creative about this, the web site says.

It also says the 72 hour sale is offering the OEM OS for $142 apiece, while it's regular price is $149. The information is here.

I'm not to sure about XP x64. I think it is really nothing more than a money maker for MS in between OSes... Like ME was between 98SE and XP. After reading several reviews, I think I'm going to stick with XP 32-bit and wait for Longhorn.

Yeah, I have a 64 bit machine, and MS was so nice to send me a "FREE" licensed copy.... tsk.. tsk... it's on the shelf, and I'm not installing it either..... like said above, it's just like ME was between 98 and XP, and ME was a real piece of crap...
