    Can someone please tell me,

    1. Does the digital download comes in an .iso so you can burn a bootable CD or is it some odd exe?

    2. If you order the disk is it a retail (boxed) upgrade version containing both 32 and 64 bit on the disk or is it some horrible ‘special’ CD in a sleeve?

    3. Why is it that the US students are paying 18 pounds and we have to pay 30? (39 if you want the disk), overheads is not an excuse because its a digital download that probably comes from the same sever!

    Thanks

      To be honest i don’t really know for certain but

      1. I would presume the download would be an ISO format file as all the Beta releases and RC’s downloads were in this format

      2. As i said in the article,32 & 64 bit editions will be available and the product shipped to everyone else or that you buy in a shop will have both editions in it, so i would be surprised if you didn’t get both Editions

      3. This question has gone on for ages and i don’t think it will ever be fully answered. And Windows 7 Ultimate Price in UK = £199.99 which is about €218. Windows 7 ultimate in Ireland and rest of EU – €299.99. Its the same with everything……. :-(

      At least your lucky enough to have this offer available to you
