Is there something in a signature edition not in the 64 bit edition....

suppose i'll have to install them both and see whats different.
No, there's not. It has nothing extra compared to the TechNet RTM or the retail boxed versions. No extra wallpapers or screensavers, nothing.

Only extra is Steve Ballmer's signature.

Of course with the x64 you do get an extra 32 bits

If someone shows up then I will, everyone I invited (aside from one friend that lives nearby) is out-of-state! lol

One or two are out-of-country

Funny how MS is promoting Norton in this packs, even though they have their own AV + the comments Norton made about their AV. :|

I thought that odd as well. Unless the marketing is being handled completely by HouseParty, it would seem there is a major disconnect between MS departments.

My cynical self thinks it is possible that MS did it to bolster the MSCE repair economy.

The simpler answer could be, the packs were assembled before the launch date of the MSSE and Norton's bashing were announced.

Very much possible except I believe that we would have known about the events a while ago. Eventhough I believe that Microsoft was letting leaks of Windows 7 out into wild to garner publicity and hype...they couldn't keep a secret even if they tried. It is only a matter of time before an employee blabs. I think House Party assembled the kits with oversight from Microsoft or it could have been (Antman's view here) a cynical act against Norton
