While I was waiting, I walked over to one of the airport bars and got to view a DVD of "Snakes on a Plane". The movie had just come out and hadn't been released to DVD. So I suspected it was pirated. The dust bunny I saw on the movie told me it was a camcorder-in-the-theater copy. That, plus the missing credits at the end of the movie. Finally, I watched the guy unload the DVD and noticed it had no artwork. That clinched it for me.
So yes, this explains why I couldn't buy a copy of Windows XP in town.
