"As a result, for now Microsoft is not offering an "upgrade" version of Windows 7 "E" but is instead selling the full boxed version (which does not require a prior Windows installation) at the upgrade price."
Actually that is only for a limited time since (at least in the UK) it'll be full price by the end of the year which will be 150 for home premium E and 250 for professional E

Also I won't be switching since (probably) apart from my soundcard everything else won't have windows 7 drivers (which stinks since my motherboard isn't even two years old)
