Default Vista Upgrade or Full?

So I am hearing that there is an easy way to do a clean install with home premium (or any) upgrade version of windows. The work around is even in microsofts documentation. I was just wandering if anyone has used this method yet or if everyone one is buying the full version. I don't want to go OEM because you have to get it reactivated after certain computer upgrades which I do not want to do. Thanks for the help.

i'd go for full, because using an upgrade makes xp keys invalid if you ever wanted to use it again
