Yes I know but the point is that it doesn't make sense to go 64 bit exclusive when your major products don't even have a 64 bit version.

Although Office 2010 is made in 64-bit version too so there will be an 64-bit Office well before Windows 8 is out.

The license: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/s.../cc294422.aspx

I won't keep posting about this. Just be aware of what you are actually purchasing.
We are all enthusiasts. We are always evaluating software, nowhere are we in breach of this, to accuse people here of that is unwelcome. Last thing an admin wants is lawyers handing out threatening letters.

Hmm considering subscribing to technet, but it's really expensive over here - 340 even with the 25% discount. Can I use three licenses at once, if I own and use all of the three computers myself? Would prefer to get the family pack but we once again get shafted here in Europe so that won't be an option..

there are two types of volume license keys, KMS and MAK.

KMS requires key authentication server to be located on your network. (KMS keys not available on techent)

MAK = Multiple Activation Keys, not excactly sure how many times, some say 10, some say 100. Most never reach the limit.

All volume license software on technet uses MAK keys, they only give you one key.

for all retail software you can get up to 10 keys just through technet, you can e-mail/call technet Customer Service and ask for more then 10 if you need.

Volume activation software like most servers, you get 1 MAK key that can be activated multiple times
