that is the offer I am talking about
Should be avialable after midnight this evening, I bet those servers will be busy so prepare yourself for a long download!
If you are a student have you checked to see if your school is a member of the Microsoft Academic Alliance? If so, you can get Windows 7 Pro for free through the schools MSDNAA page (some schools refer to it as ELMS, which is short for e-academy License Mangement System).
On the win741.com
deal did you get Home Premium or Pro? <-- you are aware that it is an upgrade DVD, and not full version right? Although, the Vista Upgrade trick may work with the Windows 7 Upgrade also allowing you to do a clean install with the upgrade version.
