    Technet+ and Vista evaluation disc

    I got my latest Technet discs through yesterday, and there it was. The vista disc. No product key though. For those who don't know, when you get a Technet+ subscription you also get evaluation (full and working) copies of almost all of Microsofts catalog. When they relese a new product you get the disc and a serial number. Vista came without a serial number and a little tag on the disc says 'Requires serial number'. WTF!! Are they actually saying that I should 'buy' a copy to evaluate?
    Has anyone else had this arrive yesterday, and if so, did you get a serial number?

    Why don't you go to your account on the web site and click on your subscriptions and get your key from there ? It will allow you to install it on 5 PCs [ mine did ]
    Had mine installed since November..... [ downloaded it ]

    Remember peeps, you get a 4 month trial (with windows updates and validation passing for the MS site) before you need to buy/activate.
