Windows 7: Question about the windows 7 student deal

Do you have any XP or Vista laying around, or a retail copy on another machine you can stop using for the purpose of satisfying the EULA to stop using the prior qualifying OS?

You don't have to have the qualifying OS installed, but can use a workaround. But you do need to have one on hand to qualify under the EULA, which is enforced on the honor system.

No, I don't have any XP or vista copies lying around, nor do I want to do anything particularly illegal. I suppose I'll just order the OEM version of Home Premium from newegg now... thanks everyone.
