The original one that was released, like a year ago, would not install unless the processor was an Athlon 64 of some sort.

Key good for one year....huh ....what the heck is this? Microsoft is comin up with licensing similar to the one used with Antivirus company's???

I've always preferred computer games to consoles'....but if Microsoft really comes up with something like, I will most defiinitely get Windows off my hard drive and give the whole space to Linux and get myself an Xbox for gaming.

I've been all over Microshaft's site and didn't see anything about a one year only key....so it all might come out ok afterall

OH I just saw....they only have pre-release yet and the pre-release is only good for 360 Days...

The whole idea is to make you pay for the retail version when they get it out I guess hehe

anyone that dls it is a beta tester i guess.  I'm guessing Windows XP Professional x64 Edition still has lots o' bugs.

Irony?  Supporting m$ on on hand and boycotting them on the other?

Or you could just get linux and WINE... dont know how well this works but hey, its worth a try.

Dewm_Solo, there is a damn edit feature. And do you think that Microsoft would give out a free OS?
