I'm anxiously awaiting the reports from the field on this from somebody with the actual upgrade media.
My understanding is that to load the upgrade disc, you have to have the previous OS installed on the machine and it has to be activated in order to upgrade.
Thus, if you were to start all over a year from now...you would be forced to install Vista and get it activated and then upgrade it.

Exactly the way that I would have gone.
