    If you're asking "can you" realistically, then yes.

    If you're asking "can you" ethically, then no.

    The simple answer is YES. It is possible, just not moral. Also, it depends on what type of windows it is.

    I've had XP (MCE) of 3 computers at my house. Had to make one phone call to MS when I had a "authentication error" during my last install, but otherwise smooth sailing.
