I got mine and handed one to a work mate, I will actually look into where I can get it from as a full copy so I can set up a server at home.

I might just put in a couple more orders for giggles.

I ordered my full versions from Megabuy (megabuy.com.au)

The OEM version is supposed to be purchased with appropriate hardware, but I guess the System Builder requirements are a bit fuzzy.

Given that I've bought 5 copies, I'm secretly hoping that to change to say my second copy, that I just have to change the serial key?

I haven't opened any of my copies yet to play around with it, but it shouldn't be that difficult to do that? Would save reloading it every 4 months...

nope, there is now way to change keys, you have to do a server reinstall, which basically re-writes the system partition, all the files and settings stored on the DATA partition should be saved.

I'm wondering what it'd be like for gaming on? anyone tried it? my guess is that it couldn't be much worse that Vista.....

Considering how good Vista is at gaming, that must be good!

I have heard of people using Server 2003 as a gaming platform. a lot of XP junk is disabled by default.

I'm using that (well sort of, XP x64...same thing) and it's great for gaming, very fast, and no BS.

Just order it a few times. I did two orders to the one place. Both came bundled together. They arrived yesterday. Now... what to do with them... ><

What about magic Jellybean 1.51? That can change windows keys on at least XP, but haven't tried it on WHS or Server 2003.

I don't know if that would affect the eval period or activation status.

I can vouch that cracks don't effect said eval period on server '03, so it is likely that the same sort of system is coded in to WHS.

I woudln't think that changing the install key would change it, as it's based on teh install date which doesn't change with key change. You could try changing the product ID to be not a trial copy though. That's just a registry setting. Or perhaps just keep changing the install date, which again I think is a registry setting...
