Throwing Windows XP In The Bin

Today we brought home a load of boxes from work. They use to have new Dell computers in them. Now that IT have deployed the computers, the shipping boxes are no longer required. As we are moving house shortly, a dozen good size decent boxes comes in most useful. The boxes all had original Windows XP/SP2 OEM disks in them, all of which went straight in the bin, though the Windows Genuine Advantage leaflets went into the recycling bin.

It's a strange feeling throwing unopened Windows disks in the bin. Even stranger when you consider at retail prices the cost of Windows XP is almost more than what work paid for the PCs from Dell...
