Ever see a single dvd case with two disks and a center that swiings out with the second disk on the back side? They'll have to have some form of divider in the new plastic case being displayed. Windows 7 Team Blog - The Windows Blog
Well that is pretty Environmentally
The case should be made from re-cycled Macs and they should have both builds on a dual layer disk....and sell it for $19.99 at the local corner store....

Vista Ult 64bit - Windows 7 Ult 7264 64bit

MS announced that both 32bit & 64bit versions will come with a single license purchase with W7. Now I don't know if they'll be on a single DVD (yes, they can do that BTW) or 2 but I suspect it will be a single disk for $$$ savings.

W7 Ultimate x64/W10 Pro x64 dual boot main build-remote pc W10 Pro x64 Insider Preview/W7 Pro x64

The present MS dvds have to be usable on any dvd drive while dual layer disks for two versions would require a select number of optical drives not just any some manufacturer tosses on a prebuild or a case you put together. MS still has to look at the universal standard when mass producing any software disks just like any other software vendor.

I suspect what you don't see shown in the plastic case they displayed in the blog was the divider or what was behind the white what looks like insert in the case. You would likely see the second disk on the opposite side there like you would with two disk pc games.

Problem with previous versions: "No previous versions available"
I (stupidly and accidentally) deleted all files in my "Downloads" folder. As in, hard deleted them - not to the recycle bin. I right-clicked the folder and picked "Properties", "Previous versions". Lo and behold, there were several previous versions. I opened the one from today, browsed through...

I burned one DVD of Windows7 and installed it on my desktop and my netbook. On my desktop, I added a Quick Launch toolbar to the taskbar. Fine. Not problem. On the netbook, I can make the Quick Launch but when I shut down the netbook and reboot the Quick Launch is gone. I'm wondering if on a...
