    You just received the email, but it was announced everywhere else awhile ago.

    And what do you mean about how long the lines are going to be?

    I'm sure with some many people having internet connections, there won't be anything like there were for Windows 95.

    Of course there was, at the time Windows 95 was ground breaking and let you take advantage of your whole 100MB HD and you didn't have to reboot to play DOS games. :D Ah, memories.

    The lines for Vista were pretty long as well. I am looking for them to be crazy for this one.

    There shouldnt be too long of lines considering the 50% discount on preorders that was offered a few weeks ago. 50 bucks for W7 home premium was too good to pass up :)

    Yeah, a few of online stores I have purchased downloadable software from limit downloads and all sorts of fun stuff. Good old dvds usually don't pull such nonsense

    Same here, I will not download any software unless there is an option for the retailer to ship you a cd/dvd, I ran into a problem with Blizzard Ent. and my roomates WoW account. As soon as WotLK released and they had major problems, and they seemed to have "lost" the BC x-pack that I had bought via download, and since I had no cd or box, there was nothing they would do for me.

    Any software I paid for I burn to CD or DVD.
