    my fiancee bought her laptop last week and paid only 7000 rupees for genuine xp pro SP2 ... i dont see why piracy is so big back there .. if pro costs 7000 rs (and that too in pak .. in india i suspect it would be even less) then starter should cost something like 1000 or 2000 ... surely people can afford that!!
    or go for linux instead! .. ubuntu is excellent! (yep changed my mind)

    Win XP home costs ~ Rs 3.5K.

    If I can get that for Rs 100, I can invest the remaining amount in getting a DVD Combo or a video card, or a sound card.

    Much better investment IMO.
