Vista Premium Academic Version

I found this brand new on Ebay for $68 + shipping. Curious if the academic is stripped down any? This was the upgrade btw.

Nope, same as home premium, but like you said, its just the upgrade so you will need windows already installed to use it.

Yeah I have XP Home right now, so no reason to spend the extra money.

Would MS find out in anyway? Even care if they did? Maybe block updates and all that bs?

...Well, it's possible, but it's been my experience that when I call them, they end up unblocking it...I just feed them a bullshit lie like "I rebuilt my computer" or "This is for another PC" and they go "Ohhh, ok, well I'll unlock it then." The choice is up to you...

I made the mistake of buying Vista too soon. I went back to XP.
