What else is odd is that the software refuses to install without a key, while you can usually install for 30 days on Office and Windows without a key if you don't activate by then. Sometimes I just never put in a key because I reformat so often.
Yeah, I noticed that it needed the key straight away, too. I wonder if it's because the installer is in .exe form rather than a burnable .iso? Will they be releasing it in .iso form, I wonder? And finally, I've still only got the one key. I expect the rest will be available in the evening, my time (GMT).
