I am looking for a REAL cheap way to get a Windows 2000 Server license that I can use for my small hosting business.
I found this place: tekdeal.com and they sell it for $299 , but without a Certificate of authenticity or sticker. But it does come with a license key, and I called up the company and they said it does come with a license, just no COA. They also said I can use the license to run a business server, which I made them state so to be sure that its not some limited developers edition or something. Of course, the person on the phone might not really know and just assume.
They seem to be a big company, so is this okay? Any other ways of getting a cheap license to W2K server you guys know of?
By the way, the reason I suspect it is, is because on further thought the "license key" itself might be the box sticker, and the support agent I spoke to might have been confused. Anyhow, I will find out from MS before I buy.
BTW, If anyone knows a cheaper place to get a license, I'm all ears.
