    Or for Students who somehow don't know about this;
    US: http://windows7.digitalriver.com/sto...=1254264489033

    UK/EU (I think): http://www.microsoft.com/uk/windows/...r/default.aspx

    Only covers Home and Pro, but who really needs Ultimate. And I'm guessing you get the choice of 32/ 64-Bit.

    Bah, no disk :saddowns:

    What was the goddamn point of buying the upgrade if they were going to pull this shit for only about 30 bucks more? Refund please.

    Um... because it was 30 bucks cheaper?

    Seriously they're pretty much the same thing, what's the problem.

    Hey don't get this.

    This is the OEM version, not the retail version, meaning you can only install it on one computer.

    Retail gives you more activations more often before you have to call in, but legally it's still limited to one computer at a time.

    If I buy the 64-bit version, does it include the 32-bit version aswell?

    No, with the OEMs in the OP you only get one version. Retail and Upgrade discs give you both.

    Oh. I kept reading "until next year". So that was redundant.
