I'm looking to get Windows 7 for a machine I built recently, but when looking for Pro copies (my preference) I saw "Rental" copies for sale.
I'm unsure if these are satisfactory and can't find much useful information about the actual thing I want to buy. For instance here, they have the same icecat blurb as actual copies of Win 7 just with the "Microsoft Rental Rights Licensing" added.
Are these time-limited codes for windows? If so how long are the licences good for? Or is it a monthly payment option that is required once I install one of these copies?
Or is this actually the "rental license" as described in the graphics here
I fear it is just poorly labelled (bordering on the misleading) license rights, but happy for you to prove me wrong. Thanks.
