Ordered, thanks for the heads up mate. Wanted to get Ultimate ideally but for an extra 30quid more i really didnt think it was worth it! Anything to get rid of my old vista extreme edition, the best vista there is and its still shit!
Didnt order from MS, got it off one of the links they give as i don't have once of those email addresses (i dont think). But i ordered it from pugh.com or something like that and didnt even need to be a student to get it im sure any random person could do it if they wanted it!
if you look at the microsoft website it will tell you all about the specifications of it, and the comparisons between the 3 versions (6 versions i guess if you count the 32 and 64 bit versions of each as seperate)
but thats the reason people are using windows 7, because it works quickly
i havnt installed it yet, but from everything i have heard its a hellova lot better than vista (i do computer science at uni, my course is full of people far too keen for that sort of thing)
