Windows 7

Has anyone seen any good deals for WIndows 7 recently and is it worth getting? I recently had to completely wipe my laptop drive as it was stuffed and installed linux on it just so I could get an operating system working. I like it but I can't get itunes or football manager (the important things) on it and figure I'm going to have to get Windows 7 and go back to windows OS. I'm assuming I will be able to install windows 7 over linux without a previous windows version on the laptop anymore.

Not sure if this is in the right section, if it isn't then please move it as to not cause annoyance to other uses.

Cheers

what os was on the laptop before it was wiped?

Try 'Wine HQ' for installing windows apps on linux. Also if you have a valid product key you could download the correct operating system and enter the key.

This maybe a little old, but iTunes can be run on Linux (Ubuntu) via wine.

It was vista before hand. But pre-installed so have no dvd's or cd's to back-up.

Tried that wine thing, got a few things working but in all honesty it's confusing me no end.
