It would, however, be amusing to see MS pursue legal action for software they are no longer willing to supply!

Or are they still willing to sell you a copy/license?

Realistically, you could find a set of old DOS disks on eBay or similar if you are worried. It is not as if they have any serial number or odious "activation" process to interfere with such a transfer.
