Does anybody know if you can buy 2 copies of this with the same student e-mail address?

Deninitely not, according to the Full Terms and Conditions link: http://www.microsoft.com/student/en/us/office/terms.aspx One offer per .edu address OR billing address. Sounds like two students with the same billing address can only order one copy of W7P, even if they have different .edu addresses!

In the past, The Microsoft Store (1-877-696-7786) has offered your choice of either Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional, either Upgrade or Full version, on DVD for the same $29.99 price with free ground shipping whenever this download deal was being publicized. They never put it on their web site. Just try calling them and ask about student pricing for Windows 7. You still need to give them a .edu E-mail address, but I didn't even have to verify it. I suppose it might make a difference if their E-mailed invoice bounced!

I've only seen it for $29.99 about three times (counting this time)since Windows 7 was released. It's usually in the $70 range for students. I know because I've had to tell people they missed it after each time it expired.

Has anyone tried upgrading using this from Windows XP ? Just want to make sure this will work with Windows XP before I buy it.

There has never been a way to upgrade from XP to Windows 7 without doing a clean, or "custom" install as Microsoft likes to call it. That means that you have to back up your files somewhere else, boot from the Windows 7 DVD, then restore your files. Since you have to boot from the DVD, you can either pay extra for the backup media through this offer, or you can look for the bothersome method of creating a DVD from the download. If you know someone who has a Win7 Professional Upgrade DVD, you should be able to use that with the license key you get with the download.

Great, but too bad it's download only. :(

If this download is like it was when they first launched Windows 7, there are ways of creating a DVD from it, but it is not as simple as burning an .iso to disc. Very annoying.

Hi fluffy! Thanks for the suggestion. I just re-checked the offer AND I have some good news. 1st: they give you an option to have them mail you a DVD copy (extra charge: $14), 2nd: they give you option to download ISO or EXE file. Yeah! :D.

Fantastic! Though the download says it's for users of Windows XP & Vista, it also works for those who want to upgrade from another version of Windows 7 (e.g., those of us on netbooks with Windows 7 Starter). An amazing bargain! :)
