Intel On a Windows Vista or Vindows 7 disk, all versions of the operating system are present, from Starter to Ultimate, and everything in between. So, if you want too upgrade to a more capable version of Windows down the road, all you need to do is pop the Windows disk in, let Windows Anytime Upgrade do its thing, and you're done. It seems like Intel is experimenting with a similar technology... For its processors.

...if I run Linux? BSD? Or hell, if I re-install Windows will it remember that it was upgraded?

This is not good... not good at all. Intel, you lost me, unless this quickly flops before getting out of "test market" phase.

I recall reading about many Intel processors, even ones you would expect to, not supporting hardware virtualization. That was strike one. Here's strike two. Pretty soon my mind will be made up: AMD only.

What's so hard about buying what you f***ing want in the first place?
