    I just purchased a new iMac, and I'm wanting to dual boot Windows. I actually really hate the Windows OS, but games tend to run a bit better there. Any suggestions for a cheap copy?

    System builders can sell Windows OEM licenses along with hardware. Apparently, it doesn't need to be a full system - selling a Windows license along with a USB cable works.

    Note, however, that OEM licenses are not portable. If you get a new computer, it won't re-activate without a call to Redmond.
