so if one gets both versions 32/64 on disc... does that mean two different keys?

One key, unless it is an OEM copy.

No. One key. You just pick what to install. The key will work with either on one machine.

I would call dude. I think the Microsoft email guy is wrong. They told me on the phone repeatedly that the download is a .exe.....not an .iso.

Oh, and no, the download version is an .exe not an .iso. I would get the disk if I were you. The servers for downloading will probably be crazy, plus having it as an .exe vs an .iso is rather annoying.
will the disk ship on 10/22/09 or will it be at my house on the release date?
It will ship on the 22nd.

this what I got as an answer from customer support when I emailed them

Quote:
Thank you for contacting the Microsoft Store Customer Care Team.

I appreciate the opportunity to assist you today. I understand you would like further information regarding the Windows 7 file formats that will be available when you have access to your download through Microsoft Store.

Windows 7 will be available in two file formats for download from Microsoft Store; both .ISO and .EXE. This will allow customers to create backup CDs as long as they know how to burn .ISO files.

The process of burning the .ISO file onto a CD is not something that will be supported by Microsoft Store.

I hope I was able to provide you with some helpful information.

If you have any further questions or wish to place an order you may do so online at Microsoft Store U.S. - Home or reach us by phone, Monday to Friday 8am to 1am EST and Saturday and Sunday between the hours of 12pm and 8pm EST. at 1-877-MY-MSSTORE (1-877-696-7786).

Thank you for using the Microsoft Store,

In the license agreement, when it says, "This offer cannot be transferred", what does it mean?

Either you can't exchange Windows 7 for something else or sell it on to someone else.

Just a guess.

You can't pass the deal for which you individually qualify onto someone else.

It's not like a coupon code that anyone can use, or where you can say "I'm not going to use this but my Uncle Bob would like it so I'll give him the coupon code instead."
