I've no intention of giving up Ubuntu - I've been using it for a few 
releases now and it is my main OS - I only use Windows for certain jobs 
I can't get right in Ubuntu (printing High Quality photos on my Canon 
Printer, occasional game, some RAW editing) all legal with real licences 
I meant i was giving up arguing about legal/illegal- as I said IANAL so 
judging how law will be interpreted and how courts will act is beyond me.
I just wanted to install clean windows on PCs (with CoA for OEM licence) 
that I intend to make dual boot and give to  members of my family.
I'm also going to install Ubuntu server edition on an old PC to learn 
even more so I've set myself enough masochistic tasks without listening 
to heated discussion about copyright law.
The original points Alan made about possible copyright infringement and 
promoting it on this list were ceded  straight away but once anyone gets 
hot under the collar I know there's not much point in responding in a 
list context.
I enjoy this list and have received much  excellent advice and 
friendliness  so I'm keeping me gob shut and moving on to the next topic 
A few people made helpful remarks - so thanks !
