Well the OEM's are tied to the machines that it's meant to be with, and I've never seen a full retail cd just given out without somehow "pirating" it.

Ok, so rather than steal the OS and crack it, you just steal it and choose to reload over and over again rather than properly license it. I guess that's a bit less on the piracy front.

I believe you can buy an W7 Pro "Upgrade" and do a clean install on the Vista Ultimate machine efectively "downgrading" from Vista Ultimate to Win7 Pro.

Why do this? .... I can see no real advantage to the Ultimate version for a home user and the Win7 Pro Upgrade license is a lot less $$$.

If I were not a Technet member I would not even consider the W7 Ultimate.
