No, I’ve not had any indications when the discs may appear. In the past I have ordered games and, once a release date has been given, I have always had them either on the release day, or the day before.
I actually think it is a bit of a poor show if discs take more than a couple of days to appear...even if, being serious for a moment, I won’t actually install straight away for all the usual reasons (not least of which there being no drivers for heavens sake!)
I did an upgrade from an OEM disc* this week. In the end I decided to revert to XP for the time being, because not all my applications work in Vista yet, but the upgrade process itself went smoothly. I had to convert my laptop's C: drive from FAT32 to NTFS beforehand, and spent some time downloading drivers and utilities from my laptop manufacturer's website (Asus), including video drivers for Nvidia?
*I got fed up with waiting for my "express" upgrade disc - Moduslink's site says POP validated but no shipping date.........
