Comments, Questions & Reviews:
Windows 7 by JoeTyrrell
Sorry to labour the point but the Windows 7 upgrade... can I assume that this will be an upgrade dvd and not a full install dvd?
What I am not keen on is, if I have to re-install Windows for any reason in the future, I don't really want to have to install Vista first and then upgrade to Windows 7.
For example, would the upgrade disk accept the Vista product key and then presumably a Win7 key and install from a formatted HD?
Of course, all this may be a small price to pay for getting Win7 for free if I buy Vista now.
It's an upgrade disk, but you would do a fresh install of Windows 7.
Question by Andy
If I want to stick with Vista, can I give Win7 voucher away, or is it tied to the Vista installation?
I believe it's tied to the Vista installation.

Yes, the voucher is valid for the equivalent version of Windows 7.
Windows 7 Voucher by James
What is the windows 7 voucher valid for, is it for a free upgrade, or is it for a discounted price on the final release of Windows 7? If it is for a discounted price, how much off will it give me?
The voucher allows you a free upgrade to the equivalent version of Windows 7.
32-bit and 64-bit by Nick
What are the differences between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of windows vista? Would hardware that works with 32-bit still be compatible with a 64-bit OS?
To understand the differences between 32 & 64bit versions of Windows Vista, please read the following Microsoft article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946765
As for hardware, most hardware will work with 64bit OS's, but only if there are 64bit drivers available for that hardware.
