Windows 7 Sold Early at College Bookstore

Students get some of the best deals on software out there – and for good reason. Students generally have less disposable income than working professionals, and companies are willing to give students a break if that means getting more users trained on a specific software.

Besides just getting a decent deal, it seems that at least one college bookstore has sold a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade early. Engadget has a scan of the disc, the sleeve and the receipt for the purchase. While the package doesn't appear to include any of the retail packaging, it did come with a legitimate key that was accepted and activated by Microsoft.

For the rest of us, it's just 10 more days until the big launch of Windows 7.
