having a clearout...any of this worth anything?

Post by RanCorX2 »

chucked out a load of msdn and technet discs but found a box i labled betas so i've kept that for now.

mixture of beta, evaluation and rc discs, not many keys but some have them printed on the discs.

17 discs with debug/checked on them, some from 90's
several beta discs containing windows 2000 and rc versions
1 windows me beta 3
2 longhorn beta 1 discs x86 / x64
3 whistler beta 1 discs

rest are red, blue, yellow beta discs, some evaluation software and technet discs labled beta evaluation with preview, rc and beta stuff printed on them.

also got some 90's and later msdn discs containing;

windows 2000, 95 sr2, 98, windows me, nt 3.51, 16bit os, dx 6.1, 95 international releases + plus, dx 7 sdk, plus 98, nt 3.51 korean, win32's jap sdk

bunch of winxp x64 key stickers (i assume unused)

would like to know if it's worth putting on ebay or just binning?

I think you should put them on ebay, there's always people looking for these and ebay doesn't always have everything on top of that.
For the Windows 2000 discs, for reference, here's what the FTP already has artworks for, if that can help identify a few things out. It's not the full MSDN stuff, but still gives a quick idea. You could always search the database if needed. A dump of the missing discs could be appreciated as well in case we're missing out on a few things :)

But back to your main question, yeah go for it, don't bin them as they're in good condition.

Edit: Added a directory list
