Microsoft is offering windows 7 at a discounted value (see the website here). Is this a full version or an upgrade version?? I want to be able to install this version on bootcamp on Mac OS X. Will this version work for that purpose?

It is a full version. I got mine using the student discount as well.

About Boot Camp and Windows 7, this Gizmodo link should help.

that gizmodo page you linked to seems to suggest that it is an upgrade copy. So given that logic, wouldn't it not work with bootcamp?? – zpesk Oct 23 '09 at 15:10
