Misco tricks Microsoft

A Dutch Microsoft reseller has found a clever way to sell the new XP Media Center separately. Misco offers the complete package, including remote control and 160gb harddrive for less than 300 euro's.

Microsoft is "not amused". Misco has an oem-license. Therefore they are allowed to sell the software to pc-builders, but the software can only be sold to the final customer combined with at least one hardware component.
