I know it might sound obvious, but any chance you downloaded from the wrong link? Maybe Finnish was right next to English or something.

Firstly, LOL @ Your spray painting skillz :lol:

Skip SP2 and go straight to SP3. It includes everything inside SP2 + all the patches and updates.

Download the offline installation version of SP3. So you dont need to go threw the online security check crap and its quicker.
Windows XP Service Pack 3 Network Installation Package for IT Professionals and Developers
SP3 Download --> http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...a8-5e76-401f-be08-1e1555d4f3d4&displaylang=en

Then see the below info to change your local language settings, this is a common problem with warez realeases of OS'es.
I'd put a dollar on it yours is a NL (Netherlands) based VLK (Volume License Key) version. Fix your local languages then you'll be ok.
Wiki VLK Info --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volume_license_key

Definitely. Nothing more important. Plus they employ a helluvalot of people to make it, so the least you could do is suck it up and just pay them the money for it. Or go to uni and get it through MSDNAA.

Stealing open code??? thats like saying every author in the world is plagiarizing the dictionary because every word was published in the dictionary first.
Your ignorance on the flow on effect of supporting a developer is astounding. Sure shareholders take a cut in the end but its only a small percentage of the end of qtr/yrs profits. Needless to say those shareholders invest either huge amounts of money or time in order to acquire their shares.
Just fyi the bulk of microsoft's profits goes into their staff which eventually feeds through to income taxes and helps fund social services to improve communities where-ever there is a microsoft office/branch..
Also Bill Gates isn't a total douche like other multi-billionaires as he and his wife founded their own foundation to help the needy.

"Pirates of Silicon Vally" Your ignorance of things real is amazing.The fact that he did steal open code "later to become linux" makes you just one of the "crowd" and this line you use "Also Bill Gates isn't a total douche like other multi-billionaires as he and his wife founded their own foundation to help the needy." makes you even more of a naive moron.His Wife is the one who founded it and his wife is the one that makes "it happen" Bill does not want to "give away anything"

and this "thats like saying every author in the world is plagiarizing the dictionary because every word was published in the dictionary first."
singular words do not make a story,and a dictionary only gives meaning to each word.plagiarism would be to take something word for word and use it as your own.So by that sense the dictionary would make absolutely no sense what so ever should it be plagiarized.

why is that you think your "all that" and have to target what ever i say and try make something of it? are you just a default retard?.

Do you know what open source means? AFAIK any open source code is free for all with no copyright restrictions. Maybe my previous analogy of plagiarism was a bit over the top so its like saying people who take free samples at supermarkets are stealing. Is that better now?

Regarding their foundation, well of course his wife was initially more involved since you know Bill had a day job of being CEO of Microsoft. Ever since he stepped down from the position Bill's been more active with the foundation, I mean he made Warren Buffet donate $1billion+ to the foundation, he also traveled around spreading the word about his message.

I'm just giving you my opinion, if you think I'm a default retard then hooray for you. Does it make you feel better knowing that people who disagree with you are by default retards???
You sound like a genius and you surely contribute a lot to society!!!
