    Anybody know a good way to convince any father to let their son subscribe?
    I have the money and it actually is MY money, but he isn't letting me order it.

    I asked him if he wanted to half it with me just in case it deals with the whole "Son, you need to save up." thing but he didn't want to take my other half.
    I tried making a median and the only thing he offered is "Once you know what you want to do after Grade 12, then I'll let you buy it." I could simply say "Computer Science" but I don't want to do that because it might seem like I'm lying through his eyes, just to get a subscription.

    Haha.

    What boggles me is how they're putting Enterprise AND Ultimate retail copies available.

    According to wikipedia, Enterprise and Ultimate offer the same thing.
    The only difference is that Enterprise is only available to Volume Licensing customers.

    Could the keys they give out for Enterprise be Volume Licensing Keys?

    Not sure. I thought if you wanted volume licensing you had to do something else to get the keys...

    Yea, you have to have a Volume Licensing subscription. You can still download the Enterprise edition, but it is still just the single use type. The only difference from Ultimate and Enterprise, is that Enterprise does not, by default, have the Windows games installed.

    How are the download speeds from the Microsoft/TechNet website?

    Good?
    Bad?

    My download failed pretty much right after I left my room for work. Looks like I'll be downloading the files to my lappy at home over the weekend :(

    I have a nifty Lightscribe burner in my lappy though. Think I'll make use of that for a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 disc :) What picture do you guys think I should use? Remember the center won't show up:

    If it's possible, have this circular thing around the center: http://images.chron.com/blogs/techblog/archives/win7jpg.jpg

    Also, I'll be subscribing later on today :D
    My father said if I just pass my road test and get my FULL driver's license he'll be happy to let me get it. I PASSED.

    And hopefully the coupon codes last a few more hours >;[

    And is there still tax on the purchase? I live in Canada; is there anything I need to know before purchasing the subscription?
    Like do I need to convert the currency on the card to USD or will the Microsoft site do that itself?

    Its not going to be in color, so pick something that will look nice in that mono color. Good idea, I have both DVD and CD LS disks tho the CD LS disks are from Verbatim and not liking the quality. The DVD is from HP and its nice. Looking forward to get some TDKs, they are the best.

    Subscribed to Technet yesterday. Its time to play with Windows 2008 and Win7.:rockout:

    It's getting VERY hard to wait for another 40% coupon code. I'm getting very close to pulling the trigger...:twitch:
