    Windows 7 Home Premium OEM $90.00 was $110 bucks!

    This is the full version of Windows 7 Home Premium. It's key features include Jump Lists that keep the things you use most right in front of you as well as it's desktop enhancements that allow you to snap windows to both sides to easily view both at the same time.

    Keep in mind, that is after $10 mail in rebate. Still, at $100 not a bad deal :)

    Is that seriously the best way you can think of to sell people on this product? Jump Lists? LOL! I find Libraries and pinning apps to the taskbar more useful than that. Any way, pretty good to see Microsoft start to give their operating systems more realistic and attainable price points.

    msdn subscription keys are for use in non-production systems (text search for "game" for clarification). and only by the owner of the msdn subscription. you can not sell msdn keys, unless you sell the whole subscription

    "here, buy this genuine retail plasma tv. only $59.99. it's not stolen, you get a warranty card with it"

    yep .. look at the document i linked .. you can not sell your msdn subscription keys.

    depends on your country's laws .. if you buy my stolen plasma tv from above, i think you might be held responsible too

    so if you take your key from your msdn sub and give it to someone else, that clause is violated.

    given the amount of people using msdn keys as retail i wouldnt be surprised if m$ disables all those systems via windows update at some point .. i mean for "testing and evaluation" do you need a system that has been installed for 180 days? if you just do what you are supposed to do it wouldnt be too much hassle to reinstall that box, right ? why not just format the hdd .. testing and evaluation has no important data for sure :p
