Hey, anyone know where a cheap place to get a copy of Windows Vista or newer? I've searched and the best I can find is OEM version for around $100. I want to install it via bootcamp on my Mac so I can play AO when away from home. My wife isn't a big fan of me spending more money for AO...so we will see ;)

Dunno if you're associated with any institutions, (Work, university, College, government) but, often institutions offer their students/employees some fairly substantial discounts, I for example, got MS office 2007 through my GF's school for $10. mm, it might have been through my work, either way, it was only $10.

similar deals for OS's

edit* check with your IT guy at work if you have one... usually they know how to score deals as well.

Maybe offtopic, but AO might run fine on your mac if you can get Wine working.

Download the source for wine-1.3.18, apply one quick patch (which fixes mouse input), then compile.
