    You had better be right.... :-) I have it as a Virtual PC at the moment but only really played with it for a few hours.
    I bet it won't go over the top - is it going to be a complete re-install....if so I had better put a day aside for it.

    I have bee told that 7 has no upgrade option at all and you have to wipe the drive and start again.

    Installed x64 on my main desktop at home. Fresh install took about 30 minutes.

    Luckily I ran a Ghost over the weekend so I do not have to download 140GB from Steam again.

    Looks very, very nice.

    Upgrading my lappy now.

    Jumped on to work to see if it's stalled too but RDP has closed the session
    Downloading again and getting up to 3MB/sec but it's all over the shop.
    Also noticed it's a different download manager this morning. It was the transfer manager last night, and this morning it's the Akamai Download manager (on the technet downloads page, click details for Ultimate, then top downloads)

    If you're downloading from Technet, and have a valid key (which you can get from Technet) then yeah they're the full RTM versions and shouldn't be time limited
