    Still confusion on the OEM/System Builder version. In this article from Ed Bot there are two license agreements for this version. One is for OEM vendors and the other is for Personal Use which does allow you to transfer it to another PC.

    Hopefully Microsoft will clear this up soon.

    I paid 49.99. Looks like the system builder is the way to go for myself as reading that link on the licences it looks as if it can be transferred to another PC if I build it myself :-)

    Thanks for pointing me to that article :

    Maybe. That is Ed Bott's interpretation of the Personal Use License agreement and I hope he is correct. I searched for the new agreements for Windows 8 but can't fine anything. I hope Microsoft will clarify this.

    Still not clear if the 49.99 burtie paid will be the full ( system builder) or the upgrade.

    It seems cheap for the full - I would guess it will be more like 99 , unless MS do a fire sale on that as well.

    Confusion reigns.

    From looking at the retailers and the US MS store it's likely the upgrade.

    The price from the link in the first post is U$10 more than the US store but the "Starting October 26th, you'll also have the option to download it for 24.99" is the same as the US price when converted.

    OEM builder packs are $100 and $140 at the newegg sale.

    There is a personal use license included in the OEM System Builder Channel software, according to Ed Bott, you can move it on different system that you own, as long as it's only on one system at a time.

    This probably should be verified.
