Looking at those prices, I might settle for Home premium unless they are going to include some decent ultimate extras when it goes retail.

Thanks Slimy.

Sorry if i've missed it, but have they said anywhere what the difference between the packages are, or what the difference in features are?

I would be tempted by the proffessional version on pre-release, but what would this give me over the Home Premium?

Windows 7 RTM 64-bit
 
 

In reading this Im assuming that we can upgrade like Vista. In other words install Vista Home Premium, then upgrade it with Home Premium. That way dont have to buy the Full Version. Also will 64-bit be included or will we have to go online again and have the 64-bit mailed to us...

Wow, that preorder pricing is awsome! $49 for home premium and $99 for pro? (Didn't say if it was upgrade or full and didn't say that it was probably "One per person")

I have 4 machines to update though!
