Submission + - Microsoft's Win7 Student Edition fiasco (microsoft.com)

Nimey writes: It seems that many people who have bought the $30 student edition of Windows 7 have received a broken installer that will not create a bootable DVD image. The problem seems to be related to extracting a 64-bit version of 7 on a 32-bit version of Windows.

In other news, the Pirate Bay has several editions of Windows 7 available in .ISO format, which need a license key (which we paid our $30 for) to work anyway.
