Yep Chuck 30 million, You are correct.

No. Regrettably I stumbled a bit in the 60's and 70's.

Based on reader comments, I know many are college and university students. I figured I would take a moment to highlight a great deal for those folks we’ve announced today. For a limited time, we are offering the LOWEST PRICE ($29.99 in the US) for Windows 7 exclusively to college and university students. This offer is perfect for students who are not planning to buy a new PC but want to experience all the benefits that Windows 7 will provide. To learn more about the offer and to check eligibility, students should visit www.Win741.com.
Students in the US can pre-order their copy of Windows 7 in the US starting today and students in the UK can pre-order their copy beginning on September 30th (pre-ordered copies will be available for download beginning October 22nd). Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Korea and Mexico can participate in this offer on October 22nd (Windows 7 GA).
Windows 7 is easy to use and great to take on the go to class as well as staying in touch with friends and family via Windows Live!
Windows 7 gives university students the tools they need manage their work (including an easy to use design, the ability to easily connect to devices, and take on the go to class and the library), stay in touch with friends (with Windows Live Essentials) and have fun (including Windows gaming, Windows Live Movie Maker and Windows Media Center to interact with TV and movies).

I wonder if part of this special pricing is to compete with Snow Leopard on the university front.

I believe they actually did a comparable discount when Vista came out.

But yes, I'd imagine getting a hold in the academic environment where Apple is pretty widespread is worth it to them. And people will also often take with them later whatever they get used to during studies.

It wouldn't surprise me if they dropped the price even more than usual to be competitive with Snow Leopard in particular as well.

They did not have my college registered (some what surprisingly), so I submitted it.

Not liking the fact that is only an upgrade, as those are next to useless for me. I only do clean installs. I may or may not purchase.

MS is afraid more of Linux invading schools.

Just a simple googleing shows the real facts.

If your college gives you a .edu email you don't need to submit separately. That's only for those without the .edu where it won't go through automatically.

And you can clean install with the upgrade discs. They just need to see a prior genuine version of Windows prior. Only normally an issue if you're going to a blank hard drive.

I think it does need to be learned in schools.
I need to figure it out too sometime... Though I will have to.

I don't see anything wrong with introducing and using both types of OS. Learning Linux will help with programming, Windows with business.

That is what I install onto.

As I said, I don't do upgrade installs. Too messy.

it says they are "upgrade". Can I just install it on a blank PC without any other OS (I have W7 RC)?

I'm a student and my email address got verified and I got the link.

My university sells Vista Ultimate for $ 77... it also is called "upgrade" I expect W7 Ultimate to cost the same... and woudl pay either price but want to use it without having an older MS OS. Will that work?

Are there nay discounts for students that jsut want to buy the full thing (and not upgrade)?
