Just to piggy back onto this, has anyone got a product key they aren't  
going to use? I work in an IT shop so it would be good to have some  
practice on it (Windows 7)

Also, I think it's a bit unfair to slow the servers down just because  
you can. It's a free world, let people choose what software they want  
to use!
