Is there such a thing as "normal"? I would imagine that it depends on where you are getting the upgrade from.

Yeah, more details please! The easiest way to do an upgrade would be digitally (by downloading the .ISO and burning it to DVD before your upgrade).

Did you order an Upgrade Kit from your computer maker? Ours took a month to arrive.

I used another Win7 installer to clean install the correct version, and the Upgrade kit arrived a day before the 30-day activation countdown expired. (I could have extended it another 90 days).

I installed the key and it activated first time.

I think upgrading is easier, but I'm not sure if it's the best way out, all though, when 7 comes out, it will be my first time to ever install a new OS onto a computer. so, is it best to just upgrade? and when my copy arrives, can I just pop the DVD in there and upgrade it just like that? or is...
