    For sure, go for it! After you played with Windows 7 following with Windows 8, I think you want go back.

    Anway, a great deal and you could reactivate at your need. May after some bunch of activations you'll need to call for the activation and that's Ok as well.

    Good luck.

    Does anyone know if it would be possible to register for the offer with an OEM SLP key and then get the upgrade on a PC made by that OEM? What kind of validation is M$ doing prior to approving such upgrades?

    As far as I can tell, they are doing no verification at all for program eligibility. As for the upgrade itself it will only process if the current windows installation is activated.
