Windows 7: Buying Software Online

Windows 7 Home - 64 Bit
Buying Software Online

Hello - I would like to discuss with all the following subject:
I have shopped around for software online and one source I found, which works for me is BuyCheapSoftware. I shopped around to see if I could buy Windows 7 for less, because I think that in April Windows RC goes belly-up. I did some searching and found a Website called Shoparhive with what appears to be Legal Legitimate Microsoft Logo's and official software. There is another website which has affiliation with (see the site for details). Both sites have similar deals. I purchased ay Shoparhive, using PayPal, the Windows 7 Professional Upgrade for $125.00. About 30 minutes later I was able to download and make DVD's for both the 32 bit & 64 bit versions. In the morning, less than the 24 hours they said it would take, they sent me a link for an official key. I did a clean install over Windows 7 RC 64 bit - no request from the software was made for my Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit DVD and in about 4 hours I had completely reloaded my system. The software activated seemlessly. I am also beta testing Office 2010 Beta w/ Visio and it also reinstalled seemlessly. Outlook found all of the account information for my 3 e-mail accounts.
My point to this is why can a person buy that software that cheap? Also in reading the forum I see a lot of hoopla about what version can I use, do I need to have clean install - stuff like that?? None of that happened in my experience. I wrote this, this way because I am still wondering - considering all the information - how I had such a great experience. I would really like to discuss this with all the people that frequent the Windows 7 forum. Could anyone & everyone that has expertise and understanding of how all this "stuff" works together, Please comment - ?? God's Speed Patrick C
