Hmm, seems like this is just an "upgrade" dvd for xp or vista users as opposed to a "clean install" dvd. I might have to pass on this if thats the case.

but the thing is that the cheaper version of win 7 will only allow you to run 2 programs at a time. so you would not be able to to unrar and surf the net and run something like utorrent at the same time because you would have 3 programs running. at least that is what I read a few months back about the base model of windows 7.

If you google around it looks like it will be either, or. Hopefully both scenarios will be included in this promo.

Maybe it's time to make my first OS purchase. My Windows XP is the OEM version that schools get..

What's the difference between Windows 7 Home Premium and Professional? Is it worth the difference?
