    Hi there,

    If any of you are considering upgrading to Vista, check this out:

    http://www.softwarefirst.co.uk/index...utm_medium=CPC

    It's a boxed Academic Edition (AE) version of the software, which, according the Microsoft website, can be legally purchased and used by the following:

    * Educational Institutions
    * Administrative Offices & Boards of Education
    * Teachers, Faculty and Staff
    * Students
    * Public Libraries
    * Public Museums
    * Home-School Programs

    (proof: http://www.microsoft.com/uk/education/buy/who.mspx section D)

    So, if you are a MS lover who goes to school, university or is home-educated, get in there!

    (btw, if you are a Mac or Linux fanboy, please don't post "x is better" because this is for the MS people)

    Dorky question alert. Does it come in the funky swivel box?

    It's more like £50 now the Google offer ended, but £50 for the Retail upgrade isn't bad...
