You can already get legal copies of Win 7 Professional. You need to join Welcome — Association for Computing Machinery ($19) and you can then download two license keys (x64 and x86). Both license keys will work on an x86 install, so you have two copies to use on Mini 10v's. Join again under a different name/email address and you would have 4 license keys for Win 7 Pro for $38. You can find all the details (read the Wiki) at Free MSDNAA Access for all IEEE Student Members - 275 Programs /inc Windows 7, Vista, and XP Pro - No Classes Needed - SlickDeals.net Forums Edit: I just checked and there are now 4 license keys available with the ACM deal for $19. x64 English x86 English x64 French x86 French A license key for the French version will work fine to install an English version, as long as the English version is Win 7 Pro. An x64 license key will work for an x86 install.

All you get is the license, you then download the actual program from Symantec and use the license key during installation. Go to eBay and search on "norton internet security 2009". Limit it to "buy it now" and you should see several available in the $14 to $16 range. The sellers are mostly in China but don't sweat it. I've bought licenses twice and never had a problem registering them. They'll send you the license keys via email, usually within an hour or so after purchase.
I did purchase one of this license Saturday night and Sunday morning I was having the email, so far its been install on one of my machine but it those works very good. I used to hate Norton cuz slow down that computers way to much but this one looks very good so far.

Actually... as I previously stated, you can get ESET Smart Security (which includes a firewall)

Sorry, I wasn't trying to knock NOD32. In fact, I used it for several years and I still think it's excellent. I only went back to Norton when they got their act together with the 2009 edition and really put together an excellent package.
