Windows 7

So it’s just my luck that the week I get my computer completely functional, I get the opportunity to buy a copy of Windows 7 for $30. This was a student rate that only requires you to have a .edu email address to register through Microsoft’s “Ultimate Steal” program.

Windows 7 is what Windows Vista should have been. I hope that it lives up to its hype. But either way, I would like to have an OS that will allow me to fully utilize more than 3.25GB of RAM and DirectX 10/11.

The copy I have is only an upgrade license rather than the full license, however, as long as you have a legit copy of Windows XP or Vista it should work without issue. I just reformatted my hard drive to have a clean instillation of Windows 7, and I will know later today if it actually works or if I’ll have to reinstall Windows XP so that I can install 7 on top of it.

Ooh.. That's good to know. I was looking to get a copy of Windows 7 as I hear a lot of good things about it. Doing the upgrade isn't that big of a deal.

Hi Anonymous, no I really don't want to be part of your online scam, unless I'm on the profiting end of the deal. But that leads to moral qualms of mine that I probably wouldn't get over. You say that you take $2,000 per day, and I say that that's just not nice.
