Default Windows 7 Ultimate for $10.50

Working in retail (if only part time) does have it's perks.

Set up a Microsoft Expert account, tied to your live ID. Do some reading, answer some questions. Get Windows 7 Ultimate (doesn't say if it's x86 or x64) for 10.50!

Should be good. Will let everyone know when it arrives.

The keys for Windows 7 are bit-version interchangeable.

Does anyone know if the disc is 32bit or 64bit?
I know a couple people who would qualify for this, but don't know if they'd want 32bit.

Just find an iso online thats 64 bit. Microsoft themselves hands it out online at places, like technet.

How does that work exactly?
Is getting the ISO totally free and legal?

What do they mean by participating companies ?

Edit: Ooh I guess this is for people that work at NCIX, BB, FS, Staples, etc. ?

Well, I hope I'm not crossing forum rules, as I believe ISO's arnt bad. If the mods feel different, please let me know. Microsoft has legitimate sites to get ISO's from, so its not warez imo. ISO's are just digital copies of a CD. It would be like using Nero to copy a CD to your hard drive in data form.

As long as you're using a legit CD key I don't see why downloading an ISO is "illegal"...

If it is then I guess I broke the law.. screw 32 bit.. all the keys work with 32 or 64

I just don't want to tell someone about the deal and then have to also tell them they'll have to do something illegal to get a 64bit version.
