NCIX, they just got a new shippment in on Saturday (21 Feb). I ordered mine a week or so ago so I am hoping it will ship on Monday. I only have 19 days left on my trial so it is going to be close. I am waiting for the full version before I install the new hardware I have (new CPU and motherboard).

Oh, the sucky thing is, you can't just enter the CD key from your OEM disc into the trial verison, it won't work. You have to do either a fresh install or a repair install for it to work.
