4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value 8 Sept. 2007
This academic priced upgrade is exceptional value if you want to upgrade from Windows 98SE / Windows Millenium / Windows 2000 Pro or Windows XP Home, especially if you are wary about the new Vista operating system.

Either a direct upgrade or a clean install can be done with this disk.

If you still feel you'd prefer Vista, there is an academic priced retail upgrade version of Windows Vista Home Premium available, although sadly not seemingly currently available from Amazon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its a Student License 30 July 2005
This is exactly the same product Microsoft have been selling since Office 97/Windows 95 student licenses, they've changed the name to Student/Teacher License because they allow teachers to buy the licenses too now. It's the license for home use by any student or teacher, you used to have to get a form signed by your teacher to say you were a student. This is the official page relating to student licenses :

Purchased to upgrade my daughter's Dell laptop computer from Windows ME. Much better operating system, which extended the useful life of the laptop from undergraduate use through a subsequent Masters degree course and beyond.
