Thought I’d pass along a link for any US college students (or out-of-college students with a university email address that still works): Win741.com (a viral marketing MS-type thing, or something) is offering Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit or 64-bit upgrade version for $29.99 - that’s $100 off. Goes through January 2010, and is a digital download (though you can buy a physical disk too, if you like). Downloads will be available after Win7’s actual release date.
Comments turned off to avoid inevitable alternate OS user snark. Yes, I like your OS too. This is not the forum for you go to “but Windows sux zomg.” Take it elsewhere.
