alright guys, I know most of us here are students, and if not, most of us work at some sort of place of knowledge... and i just wanted to share with you guys that if you have a [B].edu email address[/B] (a student address) you qualify for the student/teacher upgrade to either windows7 home premium or Professional.
for more info go to win741.com.
Its been a long time since i have posted here, but I just had to share this with a community that has given me so much! its good to be back... finally got my new system up and running and I am anxious to get back into the scene!
I gave the pre-release a whirl and thought it was much better than Vista. They removed most of the annoyances, cleaned up the UI, and all of my hardware & software worked- either with built-in 7 drivers or older Vista drivers. I also tried it on a partition using Boot Camp on my MacBook Pro, and all of the drivers on the Snow Leopard DVD worked.
I still prefer XP over Win 7, and OS X over XP though :)

FWIW, once you purchase the upgrade for 29.99 you can opt to upgrade once more to windows7 ultimate for 89.99
