And its harder than I expected. Either that or I'm just looking for a reason to not pay for Windows 7. At any rate here's the deal. Win7 preorders are available. Yet I can't seem to find some simple answers to simple questions. For example, my XP Pro license is a completely legit volume license. I have the certificate of authenticity thingy and its never once failed any of the MS Windows Genuine Advantage tests. Yet I'm still concerned that if I buy the upgrade there will be some issue and it won't work. Like I can't go from XP Pro to Win7 Home Premium or something. Also, I want 64 bit. I can't find a place that sells the 64 bit version. So it's either going to be a pain to locate or its already on the DVD and I'll have to decide to install the 64 bit version when I install. I'm hoping its the later, but I want to know before paying the money. And finally (so far) I keep reading that there is no upgrade from XP to Win7. I don't wan to upgrade, I want to do clean installs. So I figured I'd just buy the full version. But then I see thats exactly what the XP upgrade is, the full version. Rather than Win7 backing up your stuff from XP and copying it into Win7, you have to do it and your Windows 7 disk is just a full version at the upgrade cost. Which would be sweet, if its true. Any ideas?
