    Isn't it so that he can only upgrade to windows 7 home premium?

    Today I signed up for the dell windows 7 upgrade program. Gonna run this on my dell laptop and my pc(not a dell). At first I planned to get a windows 7 pro because I completely forgot about the upgrade program.

    Also the differences between windows 7 home premium and professional are marginal and it's just stuff I don't need anyway.

    Really interested in 7. I wanna see how much better it's gonna since the first public beta. Haven't used it since that time.

    Thanks to my recent upgrade, I have 6GB RAM and have switched from my trusty XP 32bit to the Win7 beta 64bit (Build 7100). It's definately a lot less clunky than it was with 2GB so I'm pretty happy to keep using it.

    Now I have pre-ordered the Win7 Home Prem version and wondering if I can just download the RTM version and install it now and then just activate it when my key arrives?

    Don't mention that crack again, zomb69. There's no doubt that it is illegal.

    I'm currently dual-booting Vista SP2 x64 and 7 RC x64. I have Windows 7 on pre-order.

    I'm wondering though if there's any reason to keep Vista once I have the full version of 7? My experiences with both lead me to the conclusion that 7 is just a more streamlined version of Vista with trimmings, kind of like the ultimate Service Pack 3 in effect.

    Can I upgrade my copy of Vista to 7 and still keep all my installed software such as games or does installing 7 necessitate a complete new install? If it's the latter then I'd have to continue dual-booting as I have far too much stuff installed to restart again from scratch.

    Depending on how busy your Vista is, you got a LONG wait.

    this is bullzhit... just got a quad core to test it, Q8200 and got 7.3 for CPU and memory, with my E8400 and the same memory got 6.9. but in real gaming the quad core is utter crap.
