    Hi

    I'm looking to get Vista for my mac. What's the cheapest option? I'm looking for home premium. Am I eligible for 'oem'?
    Thanks

    I'm curious,.. how do you purchase software through UT? I don't want Vista, but I know that they offer great discounts on other software as well.

    yeah you have to be a student or faculty to take advantage of university discount... or you have to have a friend who doesn't want/need the software for themselves and is willing to use their one time discount on said software

    Get the OEM version of Windows Vista Ultimate from Newegg.com.
