So Microsoft just started offering a great deal on Windows 7. If you are an eligible University student currently taking classes, you can get Windows 7, Home Premium or Pro, x86 or x64, for $29.99. The order page is here. You can either choose the 'Electronic Download' option, or get a hard copy for $13 extra. Being pretty poor at the moment, I chose the "Electronic Download' option. Presumably, this will be available on 22 Oct when 7 is released, but I was wondering what all I am able to download. Does anybody have experience buying an OS from the Microsoft Store and downloading it? Do I just get a big .exe, or is it an ISO that I can burn, or is it an .exe that automatically makes a DVD? Thanks for the clarification.

Nevermind, found out the answer. Turns out you have to make your own DVD image. Judging from this page, it doesn't seem too difficult. I'd imagine this will be the same procedure used when I download 7.
