That doesn't look anything spectacular in difference from pro to ultimate, hmm.

Amazing isn't it: we have to pay twice the premium and have to wait twice as long, why are the UK always punished this way?



What did the UK do to deserve being charged more?

A few basic questions -

1) I live in canada, and I see on the microsfot Canadian website, there's nowhere to order W7 . I cant order through the US website either, since they require an area code to calculate taxes.

2) I have a legit version of Vista , but it's OEM. Will I still qualify for the W7 savings ? ( Assuming I will be able to order it from Canada at some point )

thanks guys !

Hmm,

Bit locker: seems to be available on Premium, as the link provided says it is not. Other than that I dont really see that big of an issue for what I need it for.
