    I’m actually really happy about this. We have exactly three computers that could have a lot of use for Windows 7 (two of which run Vista and the other Ubuntu and XP). I think $119 is a lot of money for one license, but this will let up upgrade to Windows 7 on all three for $50 apiece.I love my Linux, but when I have to use Windows, I detest XP. Windows 7 has made Windows enjoyable for me and this will let me have the best of both worlds.

    I have a brand new eMachine and it has windows 7 on it, I hate it, when I had windows xp it lasted me over ten years and I could download a lot of free stuff like Stripmail (it removes all the >>> on email to make it easier to read, but with windows 7 it won’t download, and it’s impossible to get answer from any of the tech reps, I hate it, I hate it, I’m an 80 year lady and proud of my accomplishments with the computer, that is when I had windows xp, but with windows 7 I’m just a frustrated old lady, and feel absolutly computer illiterate.

    I downloaded StripMail and it works in Windows 7.

    You can also use this online tool where you don’t have to install anything:

    RE Microsoft family pack—–This is great , my desk tops are in a continuous state of rebuild./refurb. I contacted UK Microsorft twice and they allowed me to transfer the license to rebuilt machines but I don’.t think they would wear another three times. Roll on Oct. 22. 10
