Sweet thanks for the reply. So only 5 Licenses of each OS, So 5 of w7 ultimate and 5 of w7 pro, so essentially 10 for my needs..... $250(renewal) i see $199 for standard, I wont need any enterprise stuff.. Will Standard suffice?

I was under the impession that the standard was limited to a single activation code, but can't find that atm.... Keep in mind that each os has many different varieties... so it's 5 x ultimate, 5x pro, 5 x home, etc...... there's also "n" versions for the european market which are identicak except for the requirementvto dl media center if you want it.

I was reading on rfd forums, Standard is 2 Licenses and Pro is 5. hmm 349$ is starting to get a bit steep for only 5.......(not really steep I'm just cheap)

standard = 2 ultimate, 2 ultimate "N", 2 pro, 2 pro "N", so that's 8 without having to resort to home.

With 32bit and 64bit keys for each version. So if you have any rig that has less than 4Gb installed, 32bit will suffice.

What do they consider Enterprise software? TMG Forefront?
I know about their Dynamics suite.

It's not much of a deal unless you run one geck of a lot of hardware, or churn it a lot. Keep in mind that it's also the retail versions so no question about changing hardware.

As I mentioned earlier... I'll gladly pay the sub just for the convenience alone.
