Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)
 
 

Even with the downloaded version, why would you have to store it on a computer?

To my understanding, the download is only stored for a certain time frame. With digital river it is stored online for 30 days. Once downloaded I would have to burn a copy and keep that handy. Otherwise I would store it on an external.

Looking back I guess it would be ok to only have available as download but there is something about having a microsoft issued hardcopy that gives me a little more sense of security. I am a create of habit.

It only cost me an extra 8 bucks with shipping and tax.

Jacen do you know how many copies they will let you purchase through this offer? Because I know the online offer only let you buy one copy.
