Just ordered my copy of Win 7

Just ordered my windows 7 from tiger direct, ill be getting the upgrade DVD - home premium... i figure the other couple features (which i can get through 3rd party software) aren't worth the extra money....

I ordered the same version as you for the same reasons. I thought $50 was a pretty nice deal. I ordered mine from the MS store. I won't get the disks but I think I'll be able to get my key sooner than if I had to wait for the disks to arrive in the mail.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc
 
 

I ordered mine through Amazon, no shipping and no sales tax. I could not forego such a great deal. Although, I am anxious to get started, I will not install immedialty after receipt, I plan to wait a while, until the hot fixes arrive.

Darn, I should have bought from Amazon and saved on the sales tax. Oh well . . .

The RC is already good enough for me (been using one or another of the builds as my sole OS for months already) so I certainly don't see a need to wait for any fixes or service packs. This is not your usual release from MS.

I don't think MS is going to be releasing any keys to people who pre order Win 7 before Oct. 22nd.

I imagine harpua is correct. MS likely won't release keys until 10/22. With any luck, retailers will ship the purchased DVDs so they arrive on that date...

Also bought the Home Premium upgrade through Amazon...applied 25$ gift 'card' and only paid a final price of $24.99! Can't beat that. No tax, no shipping... But if you want to pay for shipping, they guarantee it will arrive on release day.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64
 
 

I order quite a bit from Amazon. So, I'm an Amazon Prime member and we get free 2-day shipping ($3.99 overnight shipping). For the Windows 7 Upgrades, we get the free 2-day shipping, but will receive it by October 22. And yes, no tax as well.

I went with Professional for my PC, but got Home Premium for our kids PC. If it wasn't for XP Mode (XPM) which is free for Professional users, I probably would have settled for Home Premium myself and saved $50. That said, I want Ultimate for Boot from VHD functionality, but it isn't worth the premium IMHO. Not in my case.
