    Windows 7 Pro for £30

    Pro or home upgrade for £30 for staff and students:

    Microsoft UK Education - Home - Ultimate Steal

    (From the Terms and Conditions)
    If you are a member of staff, you must be employed (at least 8 hours or 4 teaching hours/week) at an education institution geographically located in the United Kingdom, Jersey, Guernsey or the Isle of Man.
    Windows 7 UK Online Offer Terms and Conditions

    EDIT: Dont worry, its ok with a 'sch.uk' address.

    EDIT2: With an 'upgrade' disk you will need an OS to upgrade first.

    The licence isn't tied like it is on XP. You should just be able to order both media.

    For future proofing or is 64bit still a pipe dream for normal everyday use?

    I have no plans to upgrade my pc in the next couple years (only RAM) and i dont use my PC for gaming anymore thanks to the PS3.

    Home or Pro as they are the same price.

    I don't have a domain at home so don't need that functionality however I feel I should still go for pro?

    It says about doing a custom install which requires a complete reinstallation so it looks like it would do a complete fresh install anyway?
