    There was a pretty bad incompatibility with the beta and x64 syncing to a phone through Windows Mobile Device Center, but I think that's taken care of.

    EDIT: What the fuck is "Terminal Service Enablement?" I activated Office 2010 on that key at first, and now it's some special key:confused:

    Microsoft explains the pros and cons of 32-bit v 64-bit here.

    Believe it or not, that link is actually provided on the view | details page of the 32-bit version on the TechNet downloads section.

    No kidding. I picked up a half dozen keys for Office 2010 Friday. The account this morning said I have claimed 6 keys out of a maximum of 1, under the product name of Terminal Service enablement for Office 2010. LOL.
    Just for the hell of it I claimed 10 more keys. Now the account shows an additional 10 claimed out of a maximum of 10, under the product name of Office Professional Plus 2010.

    What gives?

    Ok, this is weird. MiDo is showing as having made no posts, but he has clearly made one post, right here, before mine. Looking at the stats, shows just one post made also.

    This is a similar weirdy to the Office key thingy he describes. Looks like vbulletin and TechNet have entered the twilight zone... muhahahaha! lol :laugh:

    I don't think post count shows for a few days if you create a new account.

    I have no idea what's going on with TechNet since I haven't tried to get any keys.

    Now, I have to wonder here; The new Windows Home Server "Vail" beta was just released to the general public, and the Technet non pay subscribers. However, it is not on the paid subscriber accounts:laugh:

    What the hell, I thought that we were able to get the software before the public?

    Maybe once it goes to Release Candidate?

    ...

    -----------------------------------------------

    Basically, can I have an entire office installation running off of this TSE key, and then have 10 more running off of the retail keys? The instructions for it say to add it as like a secondary key or some weird shit.

    Ok guys, got a slight dilemma:

    It's time for me to renew. What I'm wondering is,

    What products are going to be released soon that I would want to take advantage of?

    If I let it expire, and grab and write down keys for everything I need now, I'll be good to go until the next Windows or Office comes out. Then, when it does, I can use a coupon code, and get all new keys. So, is there any reason for me to renew at this time?

    Nah, let it expire until something else comes along. That's my plan.

    Let it expire until something new comes out. Plus, the way I understand it, if you renew, you keep the same set of keys. However, if you get another sub, you get another set of keys giving you twice as many as you had before. Heck, I'd take the second option!

    I signed up last year around this time too. I'm still thinking about it.

    How long would the subscription have to lapse before they toss you a bone (discount)?
