    Default Did you get your Windows O.S by buying it or for free?

    Do you gamers actually bought your O.S to put on your DIY computers or did you get it some other way for free?

    Look for .iso and you can eh... Not on the forums bro. Not in public.
    Someone who was looking to break the law might theoretically download an illegal windows loader or download an illegally pre-activated tiny/stripped/lite version of a certain Microsoft OS. Which breaks the law of course.
