    Default windows 7 versions

    I'm sure this will have been gone over before but I cant find it in the search.
    I am concidering upgrading to win7 HP.
    The full retail version in NZ appears to be GFC-0025.
    In the US & Aus GFC-0019 appears to be common.
    What would be the difference?

    Daylight saving, language?
    Amnesia International, remembering for those that can't.

    No trees were harmed in the making of this post but a few electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

    Yeah it ought to work either way.
    UK & NZ have the same product (GFC-0025 English - Rest of World)

    What version of Windows do you currently have ?

    Buying off Trademe by any chance ??

    Be carefull, Ive had customers buy Counterfeit MS products off trademe.
    It may look legit, but just stop working 3 months later
    If its alot cheaper than in the shops, then........
