dilema.. should i go for 64bit or 32bit?

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

No need to go 64bit then

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

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?

its a shame this isnt the RRP
i think a lot more people would purchase it legally!

This is for .ac.uk addresses and not .sch.uk like most of us have it seems!

Super! just waiting for the page to load currently to see what it says!
20th October 2009, 04:15 PM #12
I registered with my .sch.uk
20th October 2009, 04:24 PM #13
Flippin' typical! Wonder if it's too late to cancel my pre-order elsewhere?

- Rep Power
I just noticed it says upgrade, im using XP. So would require a full version
20th October 2009, 04:38 PM #15
It says about doing a custom install which requires a complete reinstallation so it looks like it would do a complete fresh install anyway?
