Ok, I'm really considering getting windows 7 beta on my quad core cause i've got a 32 bit OS and and i've got 4gb ram so i really Need a 64 bit OS. Anyway im wondering about product keys. Dose it ask for one. or Do i have to use a vista key. I hated f*cking around with vista when i pirated it.. Anyway i just want to know what im in for and do i need a key. It says free on microsoft but my luck the dick heads want a key. I've was brought up on a 98 computer and i used xp for a for ever! I need to upgrade. I dont plan to get the final windows 7, I plan to stay on the beta untill the next windows. I've heard windows 7 is speeder then XP. I could just downgrade to XP if it don't work.
