I was just browsing the computer section of Ebay when I came across this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/EXTREMELY-RARE-official-copy-of-windows-VISTA-BETA-2_W0Q...294%3A50


The guy is selling a Windows Vista beta 2 disk for $35,000US!


Here's a better idea: I'll get that $35,000 Mac instead! (I wish)

What a steal. I'm going to jump on that before you guys can. I'll bet none of you even have that.

Lots of us like collecting the genuine discs, including myself (I have this pack and the RC1 version, like lots of us here do) - not at that price though! ;) I suspect they probably meant to enter something like $35 though, no-one would be so stupid to think someone would actually pay that for it!

I don't even have one genuine genuine discs in my entire collection, but that's probably because I have very little in my wallet. I bet Microsoft hates me! :D oh, and Adobe too!

I DO understand why you collect the genuine disc though.

Also, does anyone have genuine disc for Windows 7 beta 1. I don't want one, I am just wondering.

There are genuine discs for 7 Beta 1, someone posted some pictures of them a while back, they were given out at some conferences (I don't have it though). The Connect testers aren't getting the this time around as far as I know. You can actually get lots of genuine copies from MS even if you do have little money, I have genuine discs for Vista Business and Ultimate, Server 2008, SQL Server 2008, and Visual Studio 2008, and didn't have to pay for any of them, plus I now have free TechNet Direct with 10 licence keys for every edition of pretty much every recent product... :D
