Do I want Windows?

In other news, I found a source for Windows 7 starter on DVD, for a new install, for about $50 (get the license key by email & a home-burned DVD by snail-mail). Do I want to do this on my home-built computer so I can dual-boot with Ubuntu?

The motherboard provider only offers firmware upgrades in the run-from-Windows flavor, and (despite WINE) there are some programs that only run under Windows. On the other side, my netbook runs XP, and my wife’s laptop runs Windows 7 (don’t know the version, though).

If I’m honest, I’m probably only thinking of doing it because I can, and I need a new project. I’m not sure if this is it, though.
