Shorter support period.
Just compare extra bucks with the extra features you really need.
Maybe there isn't any!

Is this the 32-bit or the 64-bit?

Itís $4 cheapr than Newegg so not a good deal, nothing special anyway. The OEM version is married to the hardware you 1st register it to.

Do you have an MSDN subscription?

Or can you get one through work?

If so, it's practically free :D

Have you tried it? I changed my OEM Vista to a completely new computer, all it requires is a call to MS. I told him I reformatted my HDD, which I did. He then asked me if I had it on more than one PC, and I said no. Then he gave me a new activation code.

I have since gotten Vista 64 for my rig so everything is completely paid for and legit in case you are wondering.

Some companies have a partnership with Microsoft through an MSDN account where you can dl apps and such.

i.e. I got ultimate and office 2007 ultimate for free.

Others, you might just have to pay a nominal fee.
