  • How long after RTM will we get license numbers from our SA Enterprise Agreement?

  • As I understand it the keys will be available at the same time as the downloads.  

  • As a UK MSDN subscriber, will I be able to download the *real* Windows 7 (as opposed to the crippled "E" version)? I don't want to be forced to completely rebuild my Vista PC just because the EU are idiots!

  • Richard the truth is I don't know. But since MSDN and Technet are supposed to allow you to test software it would seem to me that we need to offer all the versions to all subscribers.

  • Thanks for the response. It now looks like the "E" version isn't going to be shipped after all!
