Yeah, but there is no upgrade path for the E edition:

 From Amazon

"Since only the full product is available, please note that when you 
install the E edition of Windows 7, you'll need to do a custom (clean) 
installation. That means you'll need to back up all of your files and 
settings, install the operating system, then re-install your files, 
settings and programs. Be sure to check out Amazon’s great selection of 
storage devices in our electronics store that will assist you in this 
process. "

Doesn't sound like an easy upgrade path. Don't you just love that sudo 
update-manager -d is so simple??
