Obtain Windows 7 x64 and MS Office

Is it just me or are copies of the above getting difficult to find? I looked on Amazon and Ebay and there was no clear path to getting the installation discs. Could someone kindly assist please? I'm not quite sure which version of Office i need yet, but will report in a while.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can get Windows 7 from Software King.

I have purchased from Software King and they are legitimate. You can purchase software with a download so it need not be shipped. They have Office 2010 also.

It is time to move on from Windows 7 as Windows 10 is due out very soon and Windows 8 runs all modern software.
