Do you need the installation? Or just a legit key? I have about 5 or 6 home edition keys, but am currently using a corporate edition version my buddy(computer shop owner) gave me.

Just a legit key. XP users cannot upgrade their XP install to Win 7 but Vista users can (if they want).

Well, if you have more than a couple of computers in your household, say three, then your best bang for the buck is to just go over to Microsoft's Technet website and buy a one year subscription to Technet Plus for around $350.00. With that you get 10 keys for just about every frickin product they make and are able to download them from the website directly. This inludes server software, office, you name it...

Are you talking about the full eval portion of Technet Plus? I couldn't find anything about ten keys.

Well, it's around 10 keys for most of the operating systems and other software. Some software has one key that can be used multiple times. It doesn't explicitly say how many keys you get on Technet Plus, but you can keep requesting keys at the website until it stops giving them to you... I have about 50 Win 7 RC keys...
