    Will I get My Free Vista Upgrade?

    OK!! I went and did it. After being reassured 5 times in writing from Newegg, I went and ordered a copy of MCE2005 with the free upgrade coupon. Now I am holding a poll Will I get the free upgrade?

    What version does it upgrade to? I wouldn't be surprised if MS came out with Windows Vista-Upgrade Edition. It goes from Lite to Ultra w/ Home & Pro thrown in the middle now, IIRC.

    Note it said shipping AND handling.$18.95 for handling and $1.05 for shipping. I noted at Newegg today, the promo on MCE2005 at least, is done tomorrow. I wonder just how many coupons they gave out over the weekend?

    No, but MY daddy did for 32 years. Update: WEll the box with MCE2005 arrived the other day, complete with the form we all have seen. Attached to the box in VERY TINY writing that took a magnifying glass to read was the MS OEM system builders License www.microsoft.com/oem will get you a peek at the license. The coa is DEFINITELY different Now, for the bad part. The software is DEFECTIVE. It has 3 discs, the 1and2 MCE2005 discs and sp2 Beautiful right? WRONG the sp2 disc is missing VITAL files .If fact the WHOLE i386 file that has IE and all the network files JUST AINT there. A call to newegg and they say send it back. The saga continues........
