...If using Vista, you would have to buy a copy with license. To use the one from your desktop would be illegal.

I could let you have a copy of 7, but it will expire in July/august anyway, so why bother?

Windows 7 RC is due to be releasesed in May, That would work for 12 months, and give you a chance to try it.

Next month will only see the RC which is the last version released for testing before the Final release (which you pay for)...and that is due later this year or January 2010 (click here)
