Default Re: Microsoft is offering Windows 7 at half off...but??

I'm actually tempted to preorder a second copy of Windows 7 HP upgrade since its so cheap...

At the very least I could sell it on ebay for $100+ if I don't need it.

yes, OEM copies will be out later, and yes if you want to perform an actual upgrade then you will need windows 7 ultimate.

Offer starts on the 15th over here.

But I dont get ,Theres no Euro upgrade version but you have to have a legit windows Vista / Xp to be eligible for the half price offer..

Do I have to lose my Vista to install the 7?

Like when you upgrade the upgraded from OS's liscense is no longer valid...Does that apply to this?
I may decide to translate that sentence into English sometime

I wish I would have gotten the HP upgrade for my laptop. Only way it will run Win7 now is if they have another deal :P.
