You're right, this webcast is absolutely riveting.

These 5/25 minimums for activation are going to be a PITA, me thinks.

KMS keys are 3 days as in theory your supposed to have a KMS server setup ready to be activated against. From what I understand of the KMS minimums if you have any Windows Server 2008 R2 boxes then the minimum count drops to 5 for 2k8R2 + W7 combined, whereas if you're only running W7 then you've got a minimum of 25.

Vista Enterprise SP2 was also only in the software assurance section IIRC. The nice thing about Windows 7 is that Ultimate and Enterprise have the same features this time, where Vista enterprise had some missing features (DVD playback, media center, Movie Maker HD etc).
While I had Valid SA to request Vista Ulitmate licenses the individual keys for machines made it worthless.

It's 3 days until "Automatic Activation" after that you get 27 Days to activate it manually
