    Well my OEM copy got delivered to me here at work today.

    Rather uninspriring white OEM sleeve with a clear DVD case and the disk positioned upside down so it looked fancy through the box. Booklet only highlights the features with pretty pictures so not much use :p

    I'll be reinstalling it tonight just incase there are differences between the torrent version and this copy.

    Well, I was thinking about ordering from OCUK, but thought I'd give the MS competition a go.... small chance of winning Vista and Office, but nothing to lose if I'm not the lucky one. :D

    Nope, we just cut them off. Passports will be required to cross the US Canada border effective this month. No more free rides for our northern colony.

    Only air travel is affected by the new passport law until around 2008.

    Oh, I'm sorry...

    Not if you live in Europe or anywhere else outside the good old U$ of A.
    (including Canada)

    Forgive my ignorance, I am from Holland (you know: in Europe, part of the world next to (former) Russia?), a small country just above Belgium, so how could I know..:squareeye
