      I think the anytime upgrade and marketplace distribution is a brilliant move by MS to join the 21st century and embrace e-commerce with its consumer base, im a bit disapointed that the family pack is limited to NA and home premium editions, i would of liked it if you could of just been given multiple keys for the copy you purchased, ie if i got ultimate i want more ultimate, not home premium)

      looks like ill be getting a corporate MAK version for 5 systems :)
