Hey, it's not legal. Realistically, it's not legal.
Yes, it might work. But, if you were to get audited by a licensing
lawyer, you'd be paying fines up the butt. Being legal with these issues
(especially with a business) is just another part of being a computer
user. No one is forcing you to give up your XP installations.
And it doesn't take much time at all to make sure you are legit. You get
a lot more extra's: support, updates, better software downloads.
