If it is then I guess I broke the law.. screw 32 bit.. all the keys work with 32 or 64
Agreed, I lost a disc to an old game, downloaded the ISO and used my legit key, don't see anything wrong with that.

Thanks for the link!

is it limited to one copy per person? because if not the could either buy two copies for themselves or get a friend to buy a copy and just get one 32 and one 64 and they would be set.

As far as I can tell it's 1 per person. I would have ordered 5 or so if I had the chance.

I was around for the Vista launch and all I got was a cd in a paper sleeve, with a cd key on it. Not even a COA sticker. Mind you that was 100% free and all the Futureshop tech's got that. We'll see I guess. When it shows I'm gonna try it on my Technet iso's to see what works and what doesn't. Either way it's probably worth the little paid for it, and then some.

I agree. The copy they sent me for the Launch Party didn't have a COA either, this will most likely be the same. Still, two copies of Windows 7 Ultimate for $10 isn't too bad.
