Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the academic edition of Vista from? Everywhere I found that had it is now out of stock :( Reps for any help.

Thanks.

Yeah sorry I should have specified, I want to find one in the UK. Although this brings up an interesting topic - does anyone know anywhere that will export any edition of Vista to the UK? The US prices seem so much cheaper and I don't see any reason why a US Vista wouldn't work fine here.

Do you know anyone who lives in the United States that would be willing to purchase it and ship it? Who ever it is could wrap it up as a present and ship it over to you.

Based on my experience in the past, the only difference between RETAIL/OEM/ACADEMIC software is the price, as Leejend pointed out. That, plus some silly red logo saying it's the Academic version on the packaging.

Don't forget that the voltage differences will make your Vista super speedy as we run on 110v wires, while you guys run on 220v.:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Totally. Unless you really need some of the remote/networking/domain features of Ultimate.

Anything a normal pc user uses?
I never use remote desktop, do i use any of the other network things.
I use shared folders and stuff, over a wireless network, but that must be included right?

Hehe I got one! Zebra Computers Ltd emailed me back to say they'd found one! Delivered it this morning, £60 :)

I'm well happy with that.

I had to look that up - apparently it means "for the win", i.e. it's the best/great.

I don't quite understand it myself. I will initially resist but eventually succumb to its use through long-term exposure. I will then start using it myself and scoff at people who don't know what it means. Well, that's what happened to me with "Lol". And "Brb". And many other new web-based phrases. :) I don't see why this should be any different!

anybody know what FTW means in counter-strike? a lot of players say it, and it doesn't seem to fit with "for the win" or "fight to win". maybe CS players just have a low IQ :eek:

eg i recall someone saying "ak47 FTW!". doesn't make sense :suprised:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
