About this, its wrong, you do have to activate it to get full updates. As long as you have a serial that came from M$ it should work.

That is just the timebomb when Vista Beta 2 will no longer work. That doesnt mean that Vista wont officially be released by then. The timebomb is in place just to make sure that people dotn continue to use teh Beta when the product is released.

what's the difference between the 64bit and 32bit versions. My cpu is 64 bit, so will I notice slightly better performance with the 64bit? Is it worth the extra gb?

Well for anyone who has a Creative Sound card beware. There are some driver issues with it. I have tried about 5 different drivers and not 1 worked. I finally tried some old drivers that worked back on Beta 1. So if you have issues getting your Creative sound card working try kX Project Drivers.

These are teh drivers that work for me. I finally have sound!!!
