It's an upgrade, though, not a full disk.

Just for the record.

I'm not too worried. I have a spare xp disc/code laying around and a full vista install so I'd just have to install that first before upgrading, besides I'm probably just gonna upgrade my vista install.

Speaking of Snow Leopard. I was amazed when I saw that price... hoorah!

I may purchase it, Windows 7, but I've been spending less time on my PC gaming and more time on my 360. I dunno.

I'm sure someone will get their hands on an RTM copy closer to the release date and have it cracked upon release.

I'm curious to see if they do anything special to attempt to make it difficult to crack. Remember how they made vista so "hard to crack"? kekeke

It's got a lot of backend changes, which greatly improve the performance of the OS. So it is really a new OS.

It's just not as major a change as something like Windows 95 - 98 - me (ugh) - 2k - xp - vista - win7. It's still a big change in the backend, but not as much visually. Hence the much cheaper price for upgrades, and full versions. Not to mention while Win7 is a big change over Vista it is using a lot of Vista's setups with a refined core (still based on Vista's).

I'm pissed cause my Technet account is toast so no free copy for me unless I get someone to generate me a key.

too bad windows 7 is essentially a service pack to vista. I love how MS has OA Baller convinced it's a completely new operating system.

well to end users it is, if you look at the visual changes as well as the performance improvements (vista on a netbook = )
