WTF is this? So from now on if you want to do a system re-installation the cheapest and easiest way is to install Win7 first then upgrade? Not cool man, not cool at all.
Was really looking forward to the launch but starting to get a bit annoyed now with all this RT/Pro and Upgrade/OEM confusion going around.
I think I'll stick to the RTM Version on my Desktop for now and just hope that there's a decent way to activate/crack it in future. I don't pay for "upgrades", screw that.
Let the pirating begin
Ok I'm a bit confused here, firstly if I update from my windows 7 ultimate now I'll be fine, but what if I want to format my HDD in 6 months or so, or what if I upgrade my motherboard? What's that thing of a licence code lives and dies with a pc?
I likeee WIN7 so, i will need a whole bunch of reasons to change....
Jees, the Microsoft site says you need 20GB's worth of space.
My C:\Windows (no user folders etc.) is already sitting at 38GB on my machine. So if I were to install the upgrade on my existing Win7 we're looking at +-58GB just for the OS? Ouch.
