Yeah, I would like to upgrade the motherboard now, but that means a whole host of issues (lots of time and also a new processor needed). Would be a lot of money so in the end I will probably just wait a year or two, do it then, and just pay for the upgrade. No big least I know its probably really "free" from a retail standpoint. If this was a retail upgrade, there would be not questions asked since you "own" the software. With this setup, things are a little different. Frankly, I prefer the old system, but if it helps MS makes better products then that is fine.
