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.

Sure, because the people that write the code have nothing to do with computing.

Well, I can only speak for myself, but... I do CS research and so I obviously do write code... and I have a 3 years old notebook at home, which is, by definition prebuilt. It runs everything I can throw at it (or write for it), and it has been almost a decade since I've felt the need for tinkering. And I am not alone in this; most of my IT friends have the same opinion.

In other words, I think vivainio's point stands, at least on the consumer market. Company/server is a different beast, though.
