  1. There has been no shortage of effort on Microsoft's part to give people sneak peeks at Windows 7. The beta and RC releases have been available in many forms for quite some time, giving people a chance to see what the upcoming successor to XP and Vista has to offer. Before it goes gold and is available on store shelves next month, Redmond is giving people one last shot at a free ride, in an attempt to encourage them to buy the software when it launches.

    I wonder if you'd be able to install the retail version over the top of this or whether the DC-key will unlock it.
    I had ordered Windows 7 special 1/2 price a month ago or so. It would be nice to get this and have it that much sooner.
