Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I've seen tons of Macs in anything involving creative arts, publishing, etc. Every musician person that I know has a Mac.

OEM System Builder Licensing Question
I just bought a Windows 7 Ultimate OEM system builder pack to install on a rig I am building. The authorized distribution and acceptance info indicates that as a system builder I accept the limitation that the system will be sold to a third party. I'm concerned that if I am building this for...

Changing Default Windows 7 Color with Style Builder
