So I was having a debate.

If i torretn vista home premium 64bit, would it be considered stealing? Only difference between mine and the one I want, is 64bit and 32bit. I wouldnt consider this stealing, but I would considering microsoft scamming me.

Technically no it isnt stealing. You have your license thru the serial. So you can download another copy. It is just like the XP debate. You can download another copy of XP as long as you have a serial.

I bought the OEM of vista 32bit, so my license will work for 64bit?

back it up to avoid activations. if you have the right cd, it just might go through without calling anyway

Oh, Btw themadscientist, I think you should change
"Record of Viruses found on a customers PC: 76211"
To record of INFECTIONS found....
Because they could not all be Viruses... Some had to be worms or trojans...
And Yes THERE IS a difference..

What do you mean back it up? I'm torrenting home premium 64bit right now, and hoping my CD will work even though its OEM.
