Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm looking for the cheapest solution to get a Windows 7 to my netcafe. Personally I use Gnu/Linux but apparently most of people don't. I'm thinking of ordering windows product keys only, to cut the cost from this website.

But I'm afraid that this is illegal site i.e. it sells key-gen made product keys. I thought about getting OEM editions.

Microsoft does not reveal any info about the price of open volume licensing. (I need 8 copies only for now)

Read the FAQs SuperUser is not for shopping recommendations. –  wizlog Oct 25 '11 at 20:54

Looks like a very bad made piracy side. They didn't even remove "Lorem Ipsum" from the bottom of their page and you do not find anything but spam for their domain. –  Jens Erat Oct 25 '11 at 20:59
    
@wizlog et al, is there a StackExchange site where technology shopping questions are appropriate? Sadly, Windows OS pricing is a difficult problem. –  Foo Bar Jan 10 '13 at 15:51

Tip 1: Shitty grammar on some of their FAQ pages. Red flag to me

Tip 2: If you're worried about something being legit, go to the source of the product, or at least a good retailer

Tip 3: Lack of a Contact Us page

+1 -- getting a 404 on a 'contact us' page is never a good sign –  Nate Koppenhaver Oct 25 '11 at 23:10
