Just wondering. I realize most here will only be going to it if they buy a new computer and all. For those wanting to upgrade I can tell you that, as of right now, there is no upgrade path from XP to Win7. Vista can upgrade to 7, but I'm not sure whether it has to be the same version or not (Basic, Pro, Ultimate). For anyone with a .edu email Microsoft is offering Win7 upgrades for $29.99 (LINK). The UK version will be £30, I do believe. Offer expires Jan.3, 2010. Along the same line, Microsoft is still offering Office 2007 Ultimate for $59.95 for students/anyone with a .edu email address (LINK). I don't think this is offered outside the US. I'm not sure when this offer expires, but they have been doing it on and off since Office 2007 was released.
