Got it of a website, they sent my a picture of the CD Key sticker on a Windows CD case.
My assumption is that when a store like Walmart stopped stocking their shelf's with windows 7. So in order to recoup some capital they sold them in bulk. The purchaser is now selling them at a steep discount.

Very responsive OS. I haven't had any issues yet, but I'm unnerved by the amount of tracking that comes with this.

from completed build i7 workstation. It's green, but also white.
You can use your windows 7 key to activate it... it's also wayyy better than WIndows 8. I prefer it over windows 7 due to the "app" marketplace, and I have a Microsoft account so I like Onedrive and the settings sync between my tablet and PC's.

This is the flagship operating system - only wished I'd known that I could have downloaded an authentic copy and saved myself about £150 - nevertheless I've got a bona fide version so it's too late to worry about it too much.

from completed build Budget Build 2017 [Total cost as of 20/7/18 = £480]
I got it for about £2.95 on some crazy Groupon discount. I haven't really used many of the extra features because this is just my gaming rig, but I guess it'll be handy for once this system gets overhauled and turned into my workhorse.
I'm really not a fan of Windows 10, but needs must!

from completed build The Red Menace! version 2
I must say I was hesitant on getting win 10,i got it on the USB stick bc I wasn't planning on installing a optical drive,im going to save the 5.25 slot for maybe a nice fan controller after I add 2 more pull fans to the H100i GTX.but,i really like win 10 much more than win 7 now that ive gotten to learn how to use it and navigate it well,ive read so much bad stuff about it,but I must say it was all untrue in my case,runs all the newer game great,new menu is AWESOME,and its just a good experience as far as my trials with it.

It was a gift. I probably would have chosen Home, but Pro is nice to have for the Remote Desktop feature.
