    My "proper" version of Windows 7 Home arrived in the post today, presumably to beat the threatened UK postal strike. If I try to install it before Thursday is it likely to be successful, or must I wait until the official release date?

    You got yours today? Hmm....Hope mine comes tomorrow then (mind you londons post is a real mess).. As for your question, you could always install it and then activate it after or on Thursday...:)

    Sure... You have 30days to activate (which can be extended to 120)... You could probably activate it now as you could have got it from MSDN...
