Hey guys, I just got my CD key for Ultimate in the mail from Intel for that retail edge bundle. I haven't actually installed it yet, but I got an RC1 CD (well two CDs, 64-bit and 32-bit) and the KEY! W00t! I was really worried that Microsoft was going to have separate licenses for 32-bit and 64-bit versions like with Windows XP. It's good to know that people will have the flexibility to buy a 32-bit version and then install a 64-bit version when it gets a little bit more mainstream... I wonder though, if anything but Ultimate will have this kind of flexibility.

Quite honestly, I don't understand why not simply just get Vista straight up? Here in Canada it's on par with american pricing, while the europeans are getting bent over and forced to take a 50% price hike over American prices for Vista
