    Hmm - How do we stand with the Upgrade Version?
    Thought it was not available for use in the EU
    Noticed on MVLS a Big "I agree" checkbox about only using it in specific geo-graphical locations....

    No signs of R2 on MVLS yet I take it?
    Are schools getting ent edition or pro under schools agreement?

    No, there is no 2K8 R2 yet.

    Well we are an FE College and we have Pro not Enterprise on MVLS, the KMS key we have doesn't really specify which edition we can use.

    Think that's changed now that the 'E' editions have been cut, so presume Upgrade editions will be available in the UK. All part of this "pick your browser" feature MS are incorporating.

    ...until Opera say the only "fair" way is to force everyone to have to use their browser that it!!

    Microsoft's bandwidth bill must be staggering. I've just downloaded all the Windows 7 related ISOs from TechNet which adds up to around 30GB. I'm sure I'm not the only person to have done this.

    I have just downloaded 4 ISO's.

    I noticed the 32 bit went much faster than the x64

    Lucky you, I'm getting this...

    There are no unassigned MAK/KMS keys.

    hmm... I can only see professional, I thought we was licensed for Enterprise (I have Vista enterprise in my list)

    I'd want to deploy Enterprise for bitlocker to go, so I can finally enforce encryption on staff usb keys.
