    mate win xp is cool. But if you use the pirated version on the web you will be busted by microsoft. How about trying linux mate a free and OSS.
    BTW welcome to the forum mate :D

    Firstly, u should have atleast a pentium 3 700 MHZ, 128 mb RAM, 4 GB hardisk space 2 run it.If u dont have it, b happy with win 98.

    Secondly, U can have a pirated version of win xp pro and win xp home..but u need to activate win xp home in 30 days otherwise it will stop working..not so in case of win xp. u can chose 2 not activate it and run itz pirated version smoothly.However, for installing service packs, U need 2 activate both versions of windows xp..pro as well as home.

    d00d, th pirated version did not even ask me to activate it ! And BTW, there are many ways to install SP1 and SP2 on pirated copies, without activating Windows. Just do a google-search and u'll find out ;)
