Theres also a article on PC Advisor about licenses.

Separately, the company is set to announce pricing for a previously revealed consumer upgrade system for Vista called Windows Anytime Upgrade. Microsoft has said it will put all of the versions of Vista on one DVD in packaged form, or on a PC if the OS comes preinstalled. Users will get a product activation key that can activate whatever edition of Vista they purchase, and then can use that to install the OS.

Finally, Microsoft is expected to unveil a promotion through 30 June intended to inspire computer enthusiasts with more than one PC in the home to upgrade more than one system to Vista.

The Windows Vista Family Discount allows a customer who buys the retail boxed version of Ultimate to purchase digital licences for Home Premium for $49 (£25) each that can be installed on up to two other PCs in the home, Mannion said. As mentioned before, the suggested retail price for Windows Home Premium is $159 (£80).

Coments anyone? The CD really tells me there is not much difference between the versions of vista. It does make me wonder what some people could do with a hex editor.

There are pretty major differences between versions. The difference is Microsoft seems to have a lot of confidence in their anti-piracy solutions, and have included the bits for all versions on one DVD (or preinstalled). It will certainly make it easier for consumers to upgrade. :whistling:
