LGA are all metal socket

I do for any version prior to xp/me because Microsoft will no longer release a key period. So if I need to reinstall something I've no other choice than an old used key.

And you'll never get one from Microsoft either. :()

I mean really; for a company so concerned about piracy from the Halloween letters to wga you think they'd be happy to take $10-$20 a pop for 20 year old software, but nope.
Well then it falls into fair use under compatibility under the DMCA to crack it so fake serials and old serials are the only option
Go figure

It drives me crazy from a tech standpoint because well, it won't run 10. Or 7, or xp, or 2000, or 98 or... (I skipped 8 on purpose, it doesn't count as windows). Apple is all to happy to sell me a license for system 7. Or even Apple DOS or basic!
But yes I understand; I've got originals back to 95 of each version on disc, and 2-98 osr1 on floppy.
So every time I see a key on a Case I'm scrapping you can bet your bum I'm keeping that key!
