    You can buy OEM versions of XP home from any of the computer centers... average about $700-800.

    If the fact that its illegal to download (MS does not have a legal download service for its operating systems) does not scare you, the pirated versions of XP are pretty much infected with some serious spyware...

    I'm sure the OP is trolling, like how many stores don't sell Windows in HK? Plus he mentions XP, not Vista, and doesn't ask about 7.

    Because Visa and 7 suck.... XP for me all the way until it's necessary for me to change (it was the same with Win2000 when XP came out). Not that I'm saying the OP isn't a troll...

    Most of the Mac shops will install it for you for free when you buy a Mac. You just pay for the licence and any other software like Parallels. Designer Group will do it for you. About $800 for XP Home I think.
