Need HELP - lost Linux XP activation code

Filed under
PCLinuxOS

Can anyone tell me what to do? I'm trying to install Linux XP 2006 on my laptop but I've lost the activation code. Is there anyway that I can find it on the disk? Is there something else I can do to get it?

Please help me if you can. I want to thank you for taking the time to read this and for any help that you can give to me.

re: Linux XP activation code

If you had read my review you would have read that I reviewed a time limited version. I never had an activation code. Even if I did, it would be illegal and unethical to share it.

If you don't want to pay for XP, then try one of the 100's of distros that don't cost anything. If you like XP, I recommend FreeSpire. Similar look and feel while having better hardware support, documentation, and an active user community.

Thank you.

Re: Linux XP activation code

I already have the Linux XP that I bought - but have lost the activation code. I was not asking for anyone to share there code with me. I was wondering if it might be hidden on the disk somewhere or if someone knew how I could get another code.

I'm new to this here site and no I didn't read you review as I haven't figured it all out yet. I just joined today.

thank you

re: Linux XP activation code

I apologize, I've gotten so many of those types of requests.

Surely, the Linux XP guys have a record of your purchase and can help. I used a download version with no code, so I have no idea otherwise. I hope you are able to recover it.

Technology, the law and you: Open-source software

But “free as in beer” isn’t really the point – huge numbers of corporate open-source users opt for paid commercial versions of open-source projects, for simplicity and support. And then there are all those various licenses that protect the openness of the software – GPL, Apache, Eclipse. But the good news is that, with very few exceptions, there aren’t many legal issues for the average company to worry about. Read more
