    Starter, Home Basic and Home Premium are not future proof and probably waste of money. Thats because they have a physical memory limit and for home premium its only 16gb.

    Only 1 and it's worth noting the key locks to the motherboard, which means if buy a new motherboard you'll need to buy a new copy of Windows (although Microsoft can issue a new key if you prove your motherboard died).

    Interesting. Is this a new technique? So theres no chance of using the same CD on several PCs in the same household? Someone told me Microsoft can only identify the IP address of the PC and not the actual PC. I dont actually know what im talking about lol. Just getting some clarity. Do the keys lock on motherboards with older operating systems such as vista or XP? Figured id actually buy a genuine copy only if i got away with using it on more than one pc in the household.

    Mick...the rate its going. New motherboards are accepting 32gb ram from last year and even 64gb.
    You are welcome to purchase a product which impose a limit on you mate. It's your choice.
    Whereas me I prefer to have limit of ram which my motherboard allows me, or even a bit more. The other versions have 192gb. Hopefully the price of professional will come down when windows 8 gets released.

    Win 7 OEM was the worst decision I made. I'm wanting to build a desktop and use my OS from my laptop but am unable to do so as it's locked to this computer (I believe it's more that it's lock to the motherboard model). Had I purchased retail I wouldn't have this issue and have to fork out for a new OS. OEM is handy if you're going to stick to you computer till it dies in time for Windows 8 imo...

    For some stupid reason MS seem to think remote desktop doesn't belong in this 'premium' edition which is really annoying. Can't see it right now but I got the family (3 pc) pack for around a ton a while ago, have a good look round first to see if it's available anywhere. Much better vfm if you can find it.

    Only the OEM versions are locked to the motherboard. If you get a full retail version you can switch it between as many pc's as you like. Not sure how happy microsoft would be if you used the same serial on several pc's though.

    Motherboards that accept 192GB of RAM are likely server motherboards and pointless for home use, Personally I have 16GB and I've never seen more than 10GB being used (Playing BF3, Downloading music, Listening to iTunes + AVG), yes one day PC's will have 192GB RAM but my guess is Microsoft will have release many more OS before it becomes the norm.

    Windows 7 x86 has a 3GB max ram limit so future Proof comments are definitely valid there but very few people will need over 16GB on a workstation.

    My laptop has 8GB and most applications don't support LGA so most of the RAM isnt being used most of the time.

    can you use 64-bit on a 32bit system?

    British English or American English? Microsoft don't seem to know about British English.

    Unless you want to play games etc get a free OS such as Ubuntu GNU/ Linux it's a lot better these days, UI, hardware support etc

    You can install Windows 7 on as many computers as you like. There is really no limit. However, each installation must use a unique product key to activate it. So if some machines don't connect to the internet, it will not be be flagged up.

    An OEM license it is tied to the computer it came with, meaning that if the computer can no longer function, for one reason or another, the license goes too. It cannot be transferred to another computer. However, if it's a RETAIL license, you may TRANSFER (not copy) the license to another computer if the original computer becomes disabled or gets decommissioned.

    I think this is called an OEM, as it is intended for system builders and comes with hologram stickers, at a discount price, but I thought that was old hat now, I got a copy of win 7 ultimate, by answering a few questions on a Microsoft tech site, that was posted here 2 years ago,

    Have software for students stopped supplying Win 7?

    I would just install win 8 preview, and see what happens later, their may be a discount to buy a acivation key, when the trial period runs out.in a years time.

    That's not my experience.

    I recently had to replace a 6-week old motherboard but kept the same hard drive and processor. It had Windows 7 OEM 64-bit Home Premium which needed to be re-activated but the on-line activation handled it just fine.

    FWIW I have a PC running 64bit W7 with 8Gb ram and another with 32bit W7 with 4Gb ram (using 3.3Gb) TBH I can't see any difference in the extra ram even when using Photoshop!
