>XP Pro $119 

Looks like XP Pro might have been in the Wed-Thu ad instead of the Fri-Tue ad (at least in my area).  It was a good price and wish I had caught it earlier.  My local ads have XP Home on sale for $89.

Those are probably upgrade copies and not the full version.

Ummm no These are the Full OEM versions.  For System Builders.  The retail is a bunch of fluff and loss of money.  Ebay has the Full versions hovering around the $140 mark for some completed sales. I figure that I do know how to install OS and this is the best deal I can get on Ultimate and so I pass the word on.    Full   not upgrade.   BTW windows wanted $149 for the upgrade from Preminum to Ultimate.    Don't make sense...

Well today's add at Fry's shows that Ultimate OEM is back to $179 and no gift card.  Good while it lasted.
